Imagine a Future of Living in Space: A Short Tour of Our Solar System In-Person

This talk covers a sample of destinations in our Solar System, including planets, dwarf planets, & asteroids. We'll talk about some current human-made space stations and ideas for the next few decades and beyond. We will also cover ways for people of all ages to be involved in creating a positive future for all of humanity--via education, volunteering or otherwise. This session is intended to be interactive: there will be plenty of time for questions & answers.

This program is open to all ages but most accessible to middle school ages & up.
