Our regular monthly meetings, which are open to the public, resume on Monday, November
20th, at 7:30 p.m. in Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, 20 E. Church Avenue,
in downtown Roanoke.
We're welcoming back as our featured guest speaker Steve Conard, of the Johns Hopkins
Applied Physics Lab. Steve is the lead engineer for the Long-Range Reconnaissance
Imager (LORRI) camera aboard the NEW HORIZONS spacecraft that flew by Pluto in July
of 2015. He'll be speaking about another subject this time: what we can learn from
analyzing the light spectrum (different frequency components) from stars and other
objects -- a field called spectroscopy.
Our November meeting will be in our usual venue: Classroom A on the 3rd floor of
Center on Church, 20 E. Church Avenue, in downtown Roanoke.
