Here’s an idea for our next meeting.
Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) has a planetarium show on Saturday afternoons. These are space science presentations with very cool 3-D effects in the Marsten Theater in building ISTB4. They also offer a tour of the building, which has labs, a full size Curiosity Mars rover mock-up, and a large meteorite collection.
The planetarium show is at 2:30 pm, and we could probably do the tour prior to that, say 1 pm. They charge $7.50 for the show. There is a group rate, but we’d need about a dozen people.
I think this might be a fun change of pace even if it costs a few bucks. Any comments?
