Popular Myths of Astronomy, May27

Much of what we think we know about space comes from film and television, but Hollywood's job is more often to entertain than to educate. In this fun, informative, and FREE presentation, Prof. Thomas Targett of Sonoma State University will sort fact from fiction, taking a tour through the worlds of Star Trek, Star Wars, and much more.
