This week (01 Jul 2016) we will learn about the scary mission of NASA spacecraft Juno and about the audacious comet mission of ESA spacecraft Rosetta.
We will also continue to identify stars which might have planets via NASA's Disc Detective citizen science project hosted by Zooniverse. We found several good candidates last week.
Our videos are curated to be: — from reliable science sources — most between 2 and 8 minutes long — easy to understand — uplifting — important for Earth — important for human rights
We meet at Chicago's Northeast (Levy) Regional Senior Center at 2019 W Lawrence Ave (SW corner of Lawrence and Damen) Friday mornings 9:30 to 10:30 in the Computer Room
