Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting
Join us this Friday night as Dr. Patricia Reiff from Rice University, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, and Associate Director for the Rice Space Institute and Outreach Programs, will give a presentation on "Space Weather and the MMS Mission". NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission examines the impact of the solar wind and solar particles on the Earth's protective Magnetosphere. This will be an informative talk that you won't want to miss!
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! (It's the best offer money can't buy!) After joining, you'll have access to 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., aka The Lunar & Planetary Institute) 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!
