Stargazers Club: The Hunt for Planet B

Thursday, November 3, 2022
6:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Join us at the Cold Spring Branch as we view The Hunt for Planet B a documentary that captures the human drama behind NASA’s high-stakes James Webb Telescope, which launched in December 2021.  It was the most ambitious space observatory ever built.  The film interweaves the creation of this massive machine with the story of a pioneering group of female scientists on a quest to find life beyond our solar system.  What begins as a real-time scientific adventure turns into a deep meditation on our place in the universe.

If clear, the lecture will be followed by a peak at the night sky with the Orion SkyQuest XT6 Dobsonian Telescope.

Please note any accommodation requests in the Special Needs section of the registration form. If you have any accommodation requests or questions please contact Clara at cgerner@cc-pl.org.
