Have you ever imagined traveling the universe, taking a tour of other planets? In The Vacation Guide to the Solar System, Olivia Koski and Jana Grcevich take us on an imaginative journey packed with real-life science, as we take a hypothetical tour of the planets. Their discussion will be moderated by Lori Garver, former Deputy Administrator of NASA. This event is great for families of all ages who love imagination and astronomy!

RSVP on Facebook or email RSVPs are appreciated but not required. This event is free and open to the public.

About the Book:

Imagine taking a hike along the windswept red plains of Mars to dig for signs of life, or touring one of Jupiter's sixty-four moons where you can photograph its swirling storms. For a shorter trip on a tight budget, the Moon is quite majestic and very quiet if you can make it during the off-season. 

With four-color illustrations and packed with real-world science, The Vacation Guide to the Solar System is the must-have planning guide for the curious space adventurer, covering all of the essentials for your next voyage, how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. Written by an astronomer from The American Museum of Natural History and one of the creators of the Guerilla Science collective, this tongue-in-cheek reference guide is an imaginative exploration into the "What if" of space travel, sharing fascinating facts about space, the planets in our solar system, and even some moons.
