On July 28, nearly 40 people joined us at our first SOLD OUT Quantum Leap Field Trip to gaze at the stars and consider our place in the universe at Mooresville’s Link Observatory. Want to join our experiment colliding science with the humanities? Here are a few suggestions:
- If you have a smartphone, then you’re just a click away from unlocking the secrets of the stars! Our friends at Link recommend Star Walk.
- You can take your own field trip to Link Observatory for an upcoming open stargazing night.
- Some of our favorite readings from the Field Trip included Starlight, Pluto Shits on the Universe and When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer.
Couldn’t make this event? Join Indiana Humanities for another Quantum Leap event soon! If you’re interested in star-gazing, you might enjoy the upcoming INconversation with Jonathan Eller, director of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, on October 23. We’ll sip a dandelion-wine inspired cider and consider the connections between Bradbury and the space program as well as the unique role of science fiction in helping us imagine the future.
