FREE ONLINE PLANETARIUM SHOWS AND EVENTS

We are now hosting FREE online planetarium shows (both movies and live interactive star shows).  We are also streaming live events with local commentary and chance for Q&A. Our hosts are Professor Patricia Reiff of Rice and Adjunct Professor Carolyn Sumners (VP of Astronomy and Physical Science at the Houston Museum of Natural Science).

We will be posting here the links to sign up to watch the shows and events (and ask live questions from the hosts and special guests each time).

Thanks to the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the NASA Space Science Education Consortium for sponsoring these programs.
