Our next meeting will be held on Friday, December 15. Due to a conflict at the Fire Station, we will be meeting in a different location, Jack Fields Elementary School (in the cafeteria) located at 2505 S Houston Ave, Humble, TX 77396.
Join us at 6:30 p.m. for the FYI session. Then at 7:30 we will learn about Things That Go Bump in the Universe from astronomer and science writer, C. Renée James.
The violent birth of the universe was only the first bang of a very bumpy ride. This unfathomably cacophonous beginning has spawned blasts, implosions, cosmic cannibalism, collisions, and countless other fleeting energetic events punctuating the cosmos. Although often brief, these transient phenomena pack a powerful punch. Armed with decades of theoretical progress, unrivaled computing power, and cutting-edge technology, astronomers find themselves at the cusp of understanding not just the events themselves, but how those events can help reveal the story of the entire cosmos. In Things That Go Bump in the Universe, astronomer and science writer, C. Renée James introduces us to her colleagues around the world, who are using pioneering research techniques to explore everything from the very first explosions in the universe to the dark energy that could destroy it all.
