The Last Stargazers
Ada's and Dr. Emily Levesque
A bird that mimicked a black hole. The astronomer that discovered microwave ovens. A telescope that got shot. The science of astronomy is filled with true stories (and tall tales) of the adventures and misadventures that accompany our exploration of the universe. Join Dr. Emily Levesque to celebrate the paperback release of her critically-acclaimed popular science book, THE LAST STARGAZERS, and take a behind-the-scenes tour of life as a professional astronomer. We'll learn about some of the most powerful telescopes in the world, meet the people who run them, and explore the crucial role of human curiosity in the past, present, and future of scientific discovery.
