The local Friends of Galileo Astronomy Club is inviting the public to hear a representative of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory speak Wednesday about the Hubble space telescope and photos showing the deepest views ever into the universe.
The guest speaker will be Greg Cermak, a member of NASA’s “Solar System Ambassadors” program. The ambassadors are a cadre of 500 space enthusiasts from around the nation that JPL has designated to discuss space exploration programs.
Cermak’s talk starts at 7 p.m. at the Mark Morris High Learning Center, which is adjacent to the school cafeteria. Admission is free.
Cermak is expected to show Hubble photos that glimpse at what the universe looked like 13 billions years ago, when it was in its relative infancy. Cermak, a Battle Ground resident, is a software engineer who teaches astrobiology at Washington State University in Vancouver.astronomy club, jet propulsion laboratory, Solar System Ambassadors, space exploration, Greg Cermak, Friends of Galileo Astronomy Club, 7 p.m <BR/>
