This is a wonderful break in your day leaving you more refreshed for the work to come. AstroBreak events enable employees to engage in a unique way with colleagues on campus while learning a little Astronomy.
Want to learn more about the stars in the sky? Please join us at the Manfred Olson Planetarium on campus for AstroBreak: a FREE half-hour midday program primarily for the campus community (children have to be 9 years or older). We talk about a special theme each week and we look at the current night time sky in the city and the country.
This week's theme is Evaporation of black holes, where we will discuss how these intriguing astronomical objects might end their stellar careers. The idea that black holes evaporate is one of Stephen Hawking's most celebrated contributions.
No food or beverages in the planetarium please. Our facility is wheel-chair accessible and climate controlled.
Plan to arrive a few minutes early because, unfortunately, latecomers cannot be admitted in the dark theater.
Hope to see you soon!
