SOFIA: Reflections on the Universe from 40,000 Feet
With NASA/DSI SOFIA Scientists
7:00 p.m.
Bernard and Barbro Osher West Gallery, Kanbar Forum

Join SOFIA scientists from NASA and the German SOFIA Institute (DSI) to hear about mirrors used in telescopes, especially the 100-inch mirror on board SOFIA. Learn about how the mirror was made, how and why it was put in a Boeing 747SP jetliner, and how it is isolated from the plane's vibration, as well as some of the exciting science that has come out of the SOFIA mission.

Full-Spectrum Science with Ron Hipschman: Mirrors
8:00 p.m.
Kanbar Forum

Join Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman for colorful explorations of the physical world.

Why do you see yourself in reverse when you look at yourself in a mirror? Why are you not upside down? Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman reveals the physics behind different types of mirrors and reflects on fascinating aspects of their construction and applications.
