With Ron Schmit, Solar System Ambassador at JJPL/NASA Solar System Ambassador Program. Staring into a starry sky, one can't help but wonder what is out there. "For everyone, as I think, must see that astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another." ~ Plato. Back even further than that time, we knew, and I know not how or why, that we were citizens of the cosmos. Join us for a grand tour of our cosmic home, from our place here on humanity's shore to the very farthest reaches of the universe. From nebulae and clusters, to galaxies and black holes, we'll stop along the way and marvel at it all.
