The astronomy club is meeting …but we are taking a road trip, 50 miles north to the U of I campus, to listen to the annual Icko Iben Jr. Distinguished Lecture in Astronomy.
The 2010 Icko Iben Jr. Distinguished Lecture in Astronomy will be delivered by Dr. Tony Tyson, Distinguished Professor of Physics at the University of California, Davis. In his lecture, “Exploring the Dark Side of the Universe,” Prof. Tyson will discuss one of the most intriging mysteries in astronomy today. The talk will be at 7:00pm on September 15th in Foellinger Auditorium at the University of Illinois. This event is free and open to the public.
