The Martz-Kohl Observatory Lecture Series continues on March 15, 2023 at 7:30pm. The topic is “Science on Artemis Missions,” presented by Tim Horvath, Deputy Manager of the NASA Gateway Program’s Mission Integration & Utilization Office. Artemis is the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology. Now, she personifies our path to the Moon as the name of NASA’s efforts to return to the Moon and beyond. With Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and the next man on the Moon and use innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. This presentation will include an overview of NASA’s Artemis missions, the spacecraft that will be used, how the missions will be conducted, and some of the Science that will be accomplished.

This lecture will be shown on our big screen at the Martz-Kohl Observatory and available online via Zoom. You are encouraged to come to the observatory to virtually meet Tim and join in our always lively Q&A after his talk. Later, if the weather cooperates, we offer tours and viewing opportunities through the big telescopes. Dress appropriately for the weather as if you were outside. While the classroom is heated, the domes are not.
