Description
An astronaut, a bad astronomer, and a science circus -- oh, my! Make a date for free family fun and experience the many wonders of science and technology at this annual spring event sponsored by the Texas A&M Department of Physics and Astronomy in conjunction with the Texas A&M Department of Aerospace Engineering. Ride a square-wheeled bicycle, run through a pool of cornstarch, or shoot balloons with lasers — three of roughly 100 interactive experiments that will be on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the George P. Mitchell Physics Buildings on the Texas A&M University campus. No fees or tickets are required for the free event, which will feature three fantastic Science Circus performances at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., as well as opportunities to meet NASA astronaut Gregory Chamitoff and Nobel Prize winners Dudley Herschbach and David Lee. The day will conclude with a 5 p.m. public lecture about the world's end by astronomer Phil Plait, author of the popular Slate magazine blog "Bad Astronomy."
