Journey to the Center of the Milky Way

The Burrell Observatory at Baldwin-Wallace College is hosting an open house program on Friday November 16, 2012 at 7:30pm: Journey to the Center of the Milky Way.

Dr. Chris Martin, Assoc. Professor of Astronomy at Oberlin College, will present his research on what we know about the center of our galaxy. Dr. Martin has been awarded time on the ESA’s Herschel space telescope, and leads the HIGGS (Herschel Inner Galaxy Gas Survey) project. The lecture will be held in the “Center for Innovation and Growth” (CIG). After the lecture the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting. This is a free lecture and no reservations are required.

The CIG is located the east side of Front street north of Bagley at 340 Front St. Parking is available behind CIG and adjacent to the observatory off of Fifth Ave West.

For additional questions, contact the observatory director at [masked]., or the Department of Physics and Astronomy at[masked]-2312.

See you there :)

    Fascinating presentation, and Dr. Martin was funny :) I very much enjoyed hanging out with some of the freethinkers at the Cornerstone after the lecture.

    Mark - where Front St. runs into the 'triangle', there is a very nice bar on the corner called the 'Cornerstone' and they also have good food. It is usually crowded but worth the try. If they are crowded there is a place one block away called 'Bucci's' and it is also very good.

      Either one sounds good to me!

    Thanks, Bob and Ken! I guess we'll get a consensus tomorrow- perhaps we'll check the Cornerstone first since they probably stay open later, but Mexican always sounds good to me! And if Maya stays open 'til 10:30 that would work- I imagine the program will end by 9?

    Is anyone familiar with this area, who might have a suggestion for a bite & a drink afterwards? Somewhere not too terribly crowded where we can hear ourselves chat?

      Oh, and a warning: Front Street is a 25mph zone and the cops watch it routinely. Go much faster than 30mph and you could get ticketed.
