From Seth Redfield, Professor of Astronomy:
Mae Jemison is the 2016 Sturm Lecturer and will be giving a public
lecture next Tuesday, April 19th at 8pm in the Ring Family Performing
Arts Hall (formerly the CFA Hall). Her talk is entitled, “Exploring
the Frontiers of Science and Human Potential”. She is a former
astronaut, served in the Peace Corp, is a physician by training,
majored in engineering and African and Afro-American Studies at
Stanford, is a fierce advocate for STEM education, and is currently
leading the 100 Year Starship Project… and that is just some of the
things she has done.
Bring your friends, family, and classmates. There will be a reception
following the public lecture at the Observatory (and the telescopes
will be open if it is clear).
Date: Tuesday, April 19
Place: Ring Family Performing Arts Hall
