FREE SCREENING: 'Cosmos' Episode 9: The Lives of the Stars

Sit back, relax, and experience the wonder of our universe with Carl Sagan's award-winning series 'Cosmos' on the big screen.

Episode Nine: The Lives of the Stars
The simple act of making an apple pie is extrapolated into the atoms and subatomic particles (electrons, protons, and neutrons) necessary to the task; chemical elements formed in the life and deaths of stars, resulting in red giants, supernovae, white dwarfs, neutron stars, pulsars, and even black holes.

We'll be in the space gallery this time around; in the small theater beneath the rear of the shuttle trainer. Cool area! There's a small parking lot behind the space gallery which is convenient; otherwise it's a short walk across the street from the main museum parking lot.

The screening will be followed by an informal discussion of the night's episode. A big thank you to the Museum of Flight for hosting this event!

    Great meeting everyone last night! Here's that awesome site we talked about "Galaxy Zoo" where you can help scientists classify real galaxies from Hubble. http://www.galaxyzoo.org. Super cool.

    Thanks everyone who came out tonight -- for making the journey AND for your patience through the multitude of technical difficulties! (And big thanks to everyone who helped troubleshoot; you really saved the day!)

    Here's that Eyes on the Solar System site I mentioned during the talk afterward: http://eyes.nasa.gov/ It is very, VERY cool! I recommend the ridealong feature. :)

    Thursday night, after the screening, if any of y'all are heading in the direction of Capital Hill, and have room in your vehicle, could I get a ride? Thanks in advance.

There's parking behind the space gallery; map here: http://www.museumofflight.org/files/mof_mapdirections_final.pdf Looking forward to seeing you Thursday!
