    Today's topic: Comets and the Rosetta Mission

    The Rosetta mission was the first mission to ever orbit and land on a comet. For two years Rosetta, and its lander companion Philae, sent back a great deal of data that helped astronomers understand the composition and structure of comets. Join us as we discuss the mission and many of its discoveries.

    The Dudley Observatory at miSci is committed to lifelong learning and has created programming specifically designed for adults! Come explore the museum on a quiet afternoon, then join the Dudley Observatory for an exciting astronomy lesson presented by our Outreach Astronomer, Dr. Valerie Rapson.

    Come early or stay after the lesson to enjoy the many exhibits miSci has to offer! The museum is open from 9 am – 5 pm. You need not be a senior citizen to attend.
