Earth & Space Open House

Earth & Space Open House

Join us on October 23 at our second Earth & Space Open House of the Fall semester. This month's theme is Earthquakes!, featuring a FREE lecture by ASU geology professor, Dr. Steven Semken. The lecture will include both a general discussion on our planet's extensive seismological history and a focused discussion on earthquakes right here in Arizona!

Time: 7-10 p.m.

Location: ASU Tempe campus ISTB4
 
 
The FREE lecture begins at 8:15 p.m. in the Marston Exploration Theater.
 
Before and after the lecture, planetarium shows (in 3-D) will be shown at 7:15 p.m. and 9:15 p.m., also in the Marston Exploration Theater. (Seating is first-come, first served, and the theater will be cleared after each event.)
 
Telescopes will be set up for sky viewing (weather permitting) from 8-10 p.m. next to the James Turrell Skyscape art installation (follow signs).
 
As usual, there will be many exciting demonstrations and activities in the state-of-the-art ISTB4 Gallery of Scientific Exploration by experts in astrobiology, geology, cosmology, planetary science, and more! Stop by the Ron Greeley Center for Planetary Studies table for your FREE New Horizons poster.
 
Please spread the word to your family, friends, and anyone else interested in learning more about Earth and space exploration. All are welcome!
