Description

These days, billionaires spend their honeymoon on private islands or in Parisian suites. But where will they go in the year 2200? This lecture, led by renowned Astronomy Professor Andrew Fraknoi, will explore the most intriguing future “tourist destinations” among the planets and moons in our cosmic neighborhood. Our stops will include: 

  • The 4,000-mile lava channel on Venus
  • The towering Mount Olympus volcano on Mars (three times the height of Mount Everest)
  • The awesome Verona Cliffs on the moon Miranda (which are the tallest “lover’s leap” in the solar system)
  • The recently discovered salt-water steam geysers on Saturn’s intriguing moon Enceladus (nicknamed “Cold Faithful”)
  • The latest images of eerie vistas on Pluto. 

Along the way, we’ll see breathtaking photos of these incredible sites (none of which have the coronavirus, by the way).
