Announcement: This Week at the Science Circle

Saturday 11th 10AM PST

“Voyager and Cassini - Where No One Has Gone Before!”
By Phil Youngblood Ph.D

Reality begins with a vision. Over 50 years ago, a NASA JPL scientist realized that a rare alignment of planets to take place years in the future could be exploited by a spacecraft using Jupiter’s gravity to slingshot itself to the outer planets and beyond. That vision led to the Pioneer, Voyager, Cassini, and New Horizons missions that left us spellbound with wonder as these craft gave us a closeup view of the worlds that are our neighbors. Join me this Saturday for a personal journey from our ‘pale blue dot’ to the outer reaches of our solar system, a journey that continues to go where no one has gone before!
