Café Scientifique: Light Pollution Solutions

Interested in science? Want to learn more about the latest technology breakthroughs in normal English, minus the jargon? Then Café Scientifique  at Carnegie Science Center is the place to be! You can get together with others at a scientific hub to discuss today’s science issues with experts, as well as ask your own questions! After a brief talk by the guest speaker, the evening is dedicated to a question-and-answer session. Plus, you can enjoy the pub-type atmosphere with food and drinks available for purchase.

The Guest Speaker at the next Café Scientifique will be lecturer, author, and astronomer Diane Turnshek, from the Department of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh. She will be discussing light pollution – not only that it prevents us from living under a sky bright with stars, but also how it negatively impacts human health and the environment. Turnshek will examine how innovative science and technology can reverse this steady creep of sky glow, allowing us to view the same star-filled sky that all past generations did.

Café Scientifique: Light Up the Sky with Stars  will be held on Monday, December 5, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Carnegie Science Center. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Admission is free. For more information, or to reserve your free seat. visit the Café Scientifique event page.
