Join Ron Hipschman in Full Spectrum Science as he investigates The Universe on Thursday, July 24th in the Kanbar Forum at the Exploratorium, Pier 15. This is an adults only (18 years and older, please), evening affair beginning at 8:00 PM. There is limited seating, so your museum admission price does not guarantee a seat. It's on a first come first served basis.

When you say or speak of home, you naturally think of a house, or an apartment, a building of some kind, or a city or town. Maybe you are more worldly and think of a state, or country, or even planet earth. In this Full Spectrum Science night, you will voyage to the edge of the known universe and take a look at our tiny planet we call 'home' from the perspective of where the heck we are in the scheme of things among the billions of stars and planets contained in our universe. Take a look at some of the awesome ways the universe is structured. Learn how the universe evolved, and is evolving. Venture into the future and speculate, based on what has come before, as to where the universe, and our planet with it will be in 100, 500, 1000 years from now.

Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman will be your guide on this amazing journey. As an enthusiastic a guide as you'll ever want to meet. He'll make you feel as if your are actually travelling through the universe.

Tickets are the price of admission: $15.00 for Non-Members, $10.00 for Members, and Free for Lab-Members. At the Exploratorium, Pier 15, The Kanbar Forum.
