Our next speaker will be Dr, Richard Gott. His talk will be about, “ the Cosmic Web: The Mysterious architecture of the Universe.” An exciting talk about the universe that surrounds us.

Our evening session begins at 8:00 pm EDT.

Our first speaker Will be David Eicher speaking about “Galaxies.” So many galaxies, so little time. David will show us the unusual galaxies in our cosmos.
