Astronomer Carl Sagan once wrote, “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch you must first create the universe.” From the food we eat to the way we live to our place in the universe, cosmic connections are everywhere. Join astronomer Stephan Martin on a journey to the far reaches of space and time as we explore cosmic questions and how they relate to daily life. In each session Steve will give a presentation on an interesting aspect of the universe and our relationship to it with plenty of time for discussion and questions.
Each class is $12 and classes will be held online for the immediate future.
Additional classes will be added later this spring, so please check back for updates!
