Professor Bering Speaks at Old Professor’s Bookshop

Saturday, June 28, 2014, 2:00pm — 3:30pm

Conveniently just prior to the preferred date and time for meeting at Galaxy Quest, planetary scientist Edgar A. Bering III discusses “Planets: The Golden Age of Exploration — A Stunning wealth of New Images and Science” at The Old Professor’s Bookshop in nearby Belfast. Learn how planetary scientists choose targets and then secure the plethora of images that light every astronomer’s heart on fire. Never mind pining away over having lived too late to be part of Magellan’s circumnavigation of the world. We’re living in a period that’s just as good, or maybe better: The grand exploration of the entire solar system! Best of all, you needn’t contract scurvy or get shot with poisoned arrows to be part of it. Just drop by The Old Professor’s Bookshop to hear how robotic spacecraft take all the risk while we gain all the knowledge, with the eyes in our heads extended to worlds beyond our own.
