When:Wednesday, October 14, 3-4 p.m. PDT
Target Audience:Informal and formal educators (all audiences welcome)
In this one-hour education webinar, NASA experts will discuss how we use non-visible light to explore the universe. Our focus will be on infrared astronomy and the upcoming ASTHROS mission, a balloon-based telescope that will study star-forming regions in the Milky Way galaxy in far-infrared light. JPL education specialist Brandon Rodriguez will be joined by mission engineer Jose Siles for a presentation about how NASA is using infrared light to reveal the hidden universe around us.
The live broadcast will also include a Q&A for registered participants. All audiences are welcome. The presentation will conclude with a short discussion for educators about how the content aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and related educational resources from NASA.
