Lowell42: Imagination Harnessed to Reason
Nov 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Lowell42: Imagination Harnessed to Reason @ Flagstaff | Arizona | United States

“Imagination Harnessed to Reason: Shaping our Perceptions of the Universe through Literature”

Lowell Observatory Historian Kevin Schindler will explore how writers employ the very human trait of imagination to creatively interpret fundamental scientific observations. This allows them to then develop narratives that are so plausible that they often enter the public consciousness as facts.

Have you ever wondered about your place in the cosmos? What is our universe expanding into? Why are we even here?

At Lowell42 we’ll delve into deep questions like these. Our goal is to connect you to “life, the Universe and everything.” (Many of you will recall that in Douglas Adams’s comical novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” the super computer came up with 42 as the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.)

No reservation required. Unless noted otherwise, regular admission fees apply for special events.

Meet an Astronomer
Nov 25 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Featured Astronomer: Dr. Ted Dunham
There aren’t many places in the world where the public can meet a professional astronomer and ask him or her questions. Come up to Mars Hill and meet a Lowell astronomer and take a peek at real-time images of planets, stars, galaxies and other celestial objects to be displayed on a large television screen outdoors with our new MallinCam. This is your opportunity to see interesting objects in the night sky, learn about an astronomer’s research, and ask questions you might have about any topic in astronomy.
