The Comet arrives in late 2013. Will Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) be the ‘comet of a lifetime?’ Come to Science Café the week after Thanksgiving (December 5) and learn about the latest findings in outer space. Dr. Charles Miller, NMSU Astronomy Department, will describe the status of ISON, the New Horizons spacecraft that is less than two years from reaching Pluto, and the latest reports from the surface of Mars. Find out what to expect when viewing the December night sky and what can be seen when looking from the NMSU Observatory at our neighboring planets.
Sigma Xi’s Science Café is presented by the Scientific Research Society, in cooperation with the Las Cruces Museum of Nature and Science. The free Café discussions are presented to advance greater public understanding and to encourage use of available science. Students and all those seeking greater knowledge of current science are encouraged to be at the Science Café. For further information, phone: 575-522-3120.
