November at the Museum 

This November, join us in the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Hall of the Universe or under the dome in the Hayden Planetarium for two exciting events. The month kicks off with cocktails and conversation at SciCafe: Investigating Iceberg Alley. Then, we join an expert on Venusian geology to learn about the future of exploration on Venus in Frontiers Lecture: Venus—Why We're Going Back. Finally, this year's Origami Holiday Tree returns, signaling the start of the holiday season. 






SciCafe: Investigating Iceberg Alley

Wednesday, November 2, 7 pm 

In this SciCafe, paleoceanographer Michelle Guitard shares her research on “Iceberg Alley,” the stretch of ocean between South America and Antarctica that lies in the path of Antarctic iceberg outflow, and explores how this region can help us understand the past, present, and future of Antarctica as climate changes.






Frontiers Lecture: Venus—Why We're Going Back

Tuesday, November 22, 7 pm

Join an expert on Venusian geology, Martha Gilmore, Ph.D., to explore what NASA hopes to learn in two upcoming missions to our near-Earth neighbor.
