Senior Monday: Astronomy in the 21st Century

Visit us on the quietest day of the month and receive a fabulous discount! The first Monday of every month, seniors 65 and better can enjoy the Science Center exhibits, an IMAX film and educational programming for only $6!

Admission includes entrance to our Afternoon Scholars Lecture where you get to join scientists from around the county to learn about a variety of topics as they share the latest information in a friendly and exciting environment.

The topic for May 3 is “Astronomy in the 21st Century” and following the lecture the IMAX film “Hubble” will be shown.

Since the dawn of mankind, humans have looked “up” and wondered. From nonverbal musings to analytical investigations, from the Megalithic Stone Builders to Copernicus and Kepler; this is the foundation of modern astronomy. Then, Galileo first turned a telescope to the sky in 1609 and the “Universe,” as we had come to know it, would never be the same. Take a journey through the astronomical ages, from ancient observatories to NASA’s Great Observatories, the International Year of Astronomy, the Large Hadron Collider, and beyond.

Date & Time: May 3, 12:30 p.m.
Location: Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, 1875 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101
