Extra Credit Opportunity: NASA lecture

Alan Glines, a retired NASA employee who worked in the control room of the Houston Space Center during the Apollo missions, will deliver a public lecture about recent Kepler Mission results at Pittsburg State University on Wednesday, April 11. Glines’ presentation, at 2 p.m. in 102 Yates Hall, is part of the 2012 Physics, Mathematics and Engineering Lecture Series. The list of planets orbiting distant stars is growing rapidly. These discoveries are the result of NASA’s Kepler Mission, a multi-year project that springs from mankind’s ongoing search for life among the stars.
