Using spectacular images from space probes and the world’s largest telescopes, Fraknoi will explore the most intriguing future “tourist destinations” among the planets and moons in our cosmic neighborhood. Stops will include the 4,000-mile lava channel on Venus, the towering Mount Olympus volcano on Mars (three times the height of Mount Everest), the awesome Verona Cliffs on the moon Miranda (which are the tallest “lover’s leap” in the solar system), and the recently discovered salt-water steam geysers on Saturn’s intriguing moon Enceladus (nicknamed “Cold Faithful.”)

Speaker: Andrew Fraknoi, Univ. of San Francisco
