KU astronaut to talk about ‘wild astronomy’

March 28, 2009


A former astronaut and Kansas University professor is set to talk Wednesday about modern telescopes and some of the features they reveal.

Steve Hawley, professor of physics and astronomy, will deliver his remarks, titled “Wild Astronomy: Black Holes, Dark Matter and the Prospect for Extraterrestrial Life,” at 7 p.m. Wednesday at KU’s Natural History Museum.

The event is free and open to the public, and is part of the museum’s monthly Wild Science series, on the first Wednesday of each month.

The series is designed as a way to allow an opportunity for the public to ask questions directly to researchers in an informal setting.
