Space geek team member & JPL/NASA solar ambassador Jerry Hilburn will share his knowledge on Juno Mission to Jupiter for Senior Monday––Then Avoid Being Sucked Into Planetarium Show Black Holes!

Juno, a NASA New Frontiers mission to Jupiter, was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on August 5, 2011. The spacecraft is to be placed in a polar orbit to study the planet's composition, gravity field, magnetic field and polar magnetosphere, along with searching for clues about how Jupiter formed. It will also study Jupiter's deep winds, which can reach speeds of 384 mph.

Hilburn, an active member in the San Diego Astronomy Association, tracks PHA's Exosolar data collection, teaches newcomers astronomy and shoots images for his website.

As the parent of two budding scientists, he feels the most important message we can send to children is that there is great opportunity in the future of space exploration, and that they must prepare now for that future by learning and questioning and exploring the space sciences.

The first Monday of the month, seniors 65+ enjoy the Science Center exhibits, a lecture and a Giant Dome Theater show at a discount!

Date: Monday, July 1st from 12:30PM lecture; 2PM theater show

Location: Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, 1875 El Prado San Diego, CA 92101 Google Map
