Do You Like Looking Up at the Night Sky

Then join us on March 9, 2012 at 7:00pm at the Logan Tabernacle.
An Evening with the Stars: 
Cache Valley’s Role in Space.
This presentation tells the history of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission, USU’s involvement, and will show on the Tabernacle’s large screen many of the stunning images captured by the WISE instrument. It will be Friday, March 9, at 7:00 p.m. in the Logan Tabernacle and it is free of charge.
The presenter is John Elwell, the program manager for the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, built by USU’s Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL). The WISE telescope was created by SDL for NASA to survey the whole sky. Launched into orbit in December 2009, WISE scanned the entire sky in infrared wavelengths, taking millions of spectacular images, and discovered distant galaxies, comets and brown dwarf stars, and thousands of previously unknown asteroids.
