About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

In 1953, I was six years old. The night sky above our farm was often a source of wonder. My folks were proponents of good education. We had encyclopedia and other books available. A book I enjoyed browsing was The Volume Library. Within its 2000+ pages was a section about Astronomy and the Solar System including pictures of the planets. I loved to browse those pages. Today, our knowledge of the planets of the Solar System fills volumes. This class will compare what was known about each planet in 1953 to the major findings of today. We will see the people, instruments, and missions which have contributed to these findings. Come join this journey of discovery. Fee: none. No registration. Facilitator: Jim Ruebush
