AstroJam: Mission to the Future
The Miami Science Museum invites you to blast off on October 12th for AstroJam: Mission to the Future, an event to honor National Astronomy Day!
AstroJam: Mission to the Future is all about the links between science, technology, and imagination. Some of the science and technology imagined in science fiction stories – hover crafts, smart robots, and bionic limbs – have started to become reality. At AstroJam, visitors will go on a mission to the future, learning about technology, experimenting with hands-on activities, enjoying 3-D printing demos and discovering amazing things about the Universe and how it works.
Presenters include Dr. James Webb, professor of Extra-Galactic Astronomy at Florida International University in Miami. During his talk titled “The Science of Star Trek,” Dr. Webb will discuss the real science behind science fiction stories: what is possible, what’s not, and what technology from science fiction has actually become reality.
The event’s door prize is a high-quality Celestron telescope.
Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., included with Museum admission. After 6 p.m., $6 per person.
