You are invited to join Zooniverse co-PIs Dr. Chris Lintott and Dr. Laura Trouille at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago for “A Universe of Surprises,” part of the Adler’s ongoing Kavli fulldome lecture series. If you’re in the Chicago area Nov. 1st and/or 2nd, you’ll be able to experience the lecture first-hand in the Adler’s state-of-the-art Grainger Sky Theater, but you can also participate live from your living room via YouTube 360.
Chris and Laura will share stories of unexpected discoveries that you, the Zooniverse community, have made over the years. Such as exotic planets around distant stars, and Boyajian’s star, the most mysterious star in our galaxy. You’ll be able to see how your contributions directly impact the field of astronomy and further the exploration of our Universe. You’ll also have a chance to purchase a signed copy of Chris’ new book (have we mentioned Chris wrote a book?)!
