Unfortunately, Edward Gleason will be unable to attend this year's festival.
North America's least well known planetarium manager discusses the dark arts of public astronomical education. Every day, people of all ages wander into our cosmic confection shop seeking answers about the Universe: questions such as "What is that obnoxiously bright thing rising in the east each morning?" to "How do we reconcile quantum theory with general relativity?"
During this talk, the planetarium manager talks about the philosophy of planetarium: why do we exist? What role do we fulfill? And, are we a benevolent or malignant force in our communities.
