Astronomy Smorgasbord Week 1
Into the Unknown: The Voyager Interstellar Mission
Where is the edge of the solar system, and what is the nature of space beyond it? For two generations the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecrafts have been traveling away from Earth, towards interstellar space. Review their journey from launch to present, survey their milestones, and consider what lies ahead for these missions. This class is a precursor to the upcoming Current Missions course.
Instructor: In another time, Irene Pease shared views through her telescope with her fellow New Yorkers as their Friendly Neighborhood Astronomer, but currently hosts a weekly livestream tour of the night skies and local universe. She is producer of the Hayden Planetarium video blog, Skylight, a frequent presenter and co-host of Astronomy on Tap NYC, and the pilot of Hayden Planetarium’s Zeiss Mark IX Universarium. Irene has a degree in Physics from the University of Arizona, and currently teaches physics at York College and Yeshivah of Flatbush High School.
