Doors open at 6:30 PM and our program will begin at 7 PM.
American Experience, in partnership with NHPBS, is in the process of creating a multi-part episode called "Chasing the Moon" about the early days of the space race. The Discovery Center offers visitors a sneak peak into that episode for this month’s SSF! Following the video, Dr. Andrew Jordan, a Research Scientist at UNH, will answer visitor questions about the episode! Jordan holds a Ph.D. from Boston University. He is a research scientist at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space at the University of New Hampshire. He is a member of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter team and currently studies how energetic charged particles affected lunar soil and water ice. His previous research focused on the mitigation of cosmic rays by the Earth’s magnetosphere.
Doors close at 9:30 PM.
The all-inclusive price for Super Stellar Friday at the Discovery Center is $11.50 for adults, $10.50 for students and seniors, $8.50 for children 12 and under, and free for members.
