Event description

Description

In this presentation (suitable for ages 7 and up), Dr. Paul Byrne uses Google Earth and data from NASA spacecraft to take you on a planetary journey from Mercury to Pluto, stopping at the sweltering lava plains of Venus, the barren surface of the Moon, the rings of Saturn, and the methane lakes of Titan.

Dr. Paul Byrne is an assistant professor of planetary geology in the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at NC State and a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Geospatial Analytics. His presentation will be in the Teaching & Visualization Lab, one of the high-tech spaces in the Hunt Library.

This program is presented by the NCSU Libraries.
