"Surviving Space Weather"
Saturday, August 12
Explore the science of space weather -- how it affects astronauts, space travel, satellites -- and even vital power grids here on Earth!
Then we'll board the Starship Horizon spaceflight simulator and experience a journey to space to see real auroras up close -- as well as encounter a coronal mass ejection from the Sun.
In hands-on activities, we will discover how magnetic fields work, use a magnetometer, and chart live active sun spots!
Participants also get free tickets to the Space Elevator planetarium show and experience a ride to space in our digital dome.
Event ticket also includes all-day admission to the museum and refreshments!
The program begins at 9:30 a.m., and space and materials are limited, so reserve your spot today!
