The Club meets in the Pewaukee Library conference room on the second Monday of every month at 7 pm.
Next Meeting: Monday, July 10, 2017 at 7 pm.
The next presentation will be on Saturday, July 8th, at 7 pm at the Pewaukee Library, entitled "Searching for Earth II". Ever since the launch of the Kepler Space Telescope in 2009 and the development of new ground-based telescopes, the discovery of Earth-like planets continues to rise. What are the characteristics of these exoplanets and how do we find them? Will we be able to detect life on these worlds? These are just some of the fascinating questions this presentation will address. Contact Dennis Roscoe at 608-206-0909 for more information.
This event is free and is intended for the general public.
