A Public Lecture at the Stamford Observatory

Free for members of the Museum, $3 for non-members.

The Kepler Space Telescope has changed everything we know about planets around other stars. There are now over a thousand confirmed such planets. What are they like? How were they found? Will we ever visit them? Come and find out!

After the lecture, join us up on the rooftop for a view of the heavens through a huge telescope!

This presentation is suitable for the general public, and kids over 12.
