Big Astronomy: People, Places, Discoveries - Behind the scenes with the project team

Open-to-all, Live Streaming via YouTube and Zoom on December 3rd, 6pm PST/9pm EST/11pm Chile

Join us as we host a special LIVE Big Astronomy 360 Planetarium Show and Panel Discussion on opening night of ASP's 2020: A Virtual Conference.

The California Academy of Sciences has created a new planetarium show wrapped in an ecosystem of support, from live interviews to informal activities. Learn about how this NSF-funded project centers the people behind science in a new outreach environment. The 30-minute Planetarium show will be followed by a Panel Discussion. Meet the people who bring us the big discoveries in astronomy - visit the mountains of Chile where the world's largest telescopes are re-imagining our place in the universe.
