Online: Reason for the Seasons
Friday, October 8, 1:00 pm ET
This Friday, blast off into outer space
with Museum astrophysicists Jackie Faherty and Daniella
Bardalez Gagliuffi to discover why Earth’s tilt is
the reason for our seasons, what seasons on our
neighboring planets are like, and why. Science teacher
and Museum MAT alum Deion Desir pilots our
journey in OpenSpace, taking viewers above Earth’s
atmosphere and across our solar system.
Travel through the Milky Way galaxy and
beyond! The Museum’s Director of Astrovisualization Carter
Emmart provides a guided flight through the
universe, using OpenSpace that will take you to the
outer reaches of the Known Universe.
Journey far beyond our own blue planet to
marvel at the latest discoveries from our cosmic
neighbors. Narrated by Academy Award winner Lupita
Nyong'o, Worlds Beyond Earth tells the story
of the dynamic worlds that share our solar system and
the unique conditions that make life on Earth possible.
