G’ Night Oppy + JWST – Dec 4

Wonderfest joins St. Helena's Cameo Cinema to present a heavenly double feature: first, the remarkable true story of NASA's Opportunity rover (which ventured to Mars for a 90-day mission, but survived — and explored — for 15 years!), followed by Q&A with legendary astrophysicist Dr. Alex Filippenko (discussing both the exploration of Mars AND the promise of NASA's new James Webb Space Telescope, JWST). This special two-for-one event is a national Science On Screen presentation.

Dr. Alex Filippenko is the Richard & Rhoda Goldman Distinguished Professor in the Physicsal Sciences and Professor of Astronomy at UC Berkeley. Alex has earned Wonderfest's Carl Sagan Prize for Science Popularization, and he is an esteemed member of Wonderfest's Board of Directors.
