Event Details:

Travel back in time to visit massive volcanic eruptions that have marshaled the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. Ancient eruptions have triggered drastic geographic changes as well as mass extinctions. Beyond Earth, explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system. Fly down to Neptune’s frigid moon Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter’s moon Io. On a visit to a legendary North American hot spot – Yellowstone National Park – seek clues to the inevitable question: can a supervolcano erupt in our time? After the show in the Appold Planetarium, continue the conversation over lunch at the Lourdes Café (cost for lunch not included).


 


Dr. Laura Megeath is the Coordinator of both Lifelong Learning and the Appold Planetarium.
