Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting
The Sun will become a Red Giant star as it ages. Ever wonder what happens to a star 100+ solar masses in size when it dies? Our guest speaker this Friday, Mr. Justin McCollum will explain it in his talk on "Hypernovae". You'll come out of the talk knowing how the heavy elements are created!
Our other talks will be: "Astro Oddities", the informative Member's Minutes, "What's Up in the Sky This Month?", a calendar of this year's Upcoming Star Parties (your help is always needed!), and the Novice Q&A where you get to ask us questions about astronomy!
JSCAS is open to anyone who wants to learn about astronomy and membership is FREE! After joining, you'll have access to our Loaner Telescopes and our amazing Astronomy DVD Library with 100's of choices to learn from (from Astronomy Magazine, NASA, The Great Courses, Discovery Channel, etc.). Our meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each month at 7:30 pm in the lecture hall of the USRA Bldg. (3600 Bay Area Blvd. at Middlebrook Dr.) Pizza and refreshments follow at Mr. Gatti's Pizza at El Camino Real and Bay Area Blvd. For more info, see our website at jscas.net
Note to all those who have borrowed DVDs from the JSCAS Media Library: PLEASE BRING THEM BACK AT THE BEGINNING & DURING THE BREAK AT THIS MEETING. YES, you can check them out again...or acquire new ones!
