Saturday, Oct. 21, from 1 to 5pm the Albuquerque Astronomical Society is hosting the fall Cosmic Carnival. Safely stare into the molecular forge that is our sun! Unravel the optical secrets of how a telescope works! Behold the scientific marvels presented in the Portable Planetarium! The free event at the Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center packs in more science and astronomy than the average number of neutrons released per fission event that go on to cause another fission event rather than being absorbed or leaving the material ... That's right, there will be a critical mass of it. (Nom Tayder)
