Learn with Dr. G: Predicting Meteor Showers using Python and Visual Studio Code

Welcome to a special episode of Learn with Dr G! We have just launched three new modules inspired by the new Netflix Original Film, Over the Moon! (link here please: https://www.netflix.com/title/80214236) In the new Netflix Original Over the Moon, Fei Fei builds a rocket to fly to the Moon to meet the Moon Goddess Chang’e. It is said that when Chang’e cries, her tears are the shooting starts we see in our night sky. This inspired Dr G to deep dive into what meteor showers actually are and how they are predicted. Join this live stream as Dr G explores how data science plays a role in predicting celestial events, and even brings in a little magic from the film to predict when we could have seen the meteor shower caused by Chang’e from Fei Fei’s visit. No coding experience is required to get started! Be sure to look out for more Learn with Dr G episodes as she dives deeper into each of these and demo the code, walk you through the thought process, and unlock discoveries about space exploration.
