The Joy of Partnership in Science

Professor Timothy Barker from Wheaton College will share his experiences and enlighten you to the field of astronomy.  “The joy that we share in working together as scientists is central to what it means to be human” says Barker.  Professor Barker will speak about his encounters with scientists such as Carl Sagan (world-famous author of popular science books and for co-author and producer of the award-winning 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage), John Mather (recent Nobel Prize winner in Physics), and Steve Hawley (astronaut who deployed the Hubble Space Telescope).

And if the skies cooperate, Professor Barker will break out his telescope for us to view his world up close and personal.
