You know what never let us down as a kid? Science! Whether it was Bill Nye rocking an experiment on TV, or taking it upon ourselves to shove some Mentos into Diet Coke bottles, science kept us entertained. Sometimes we even learned stuff. The Arizona Science Center’s Adults’ Night Out will remind us of our youthful wide-eyed wonder at the universe.
Dr. Michael Hart, associate astronomer at University of Arizona, will give a lecture on how a pentagram of lasers blasted into the sky by the MMT Observatory in the Santa Rita mountains helps give us a better view of the cosmos. (It’s okay to let your inner Spock utter, “Fascinating.”)
