Galaxy Ride 2018 | Oct. 2-6

Galaxy Ride 2018 | Oct. 2 - 6

We're headed BACK to Southern Illinois on Galaxy Ride 2018!

In 2015, we brought the Adler experience to folks along Route 66. In 2016, we visited Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. In 2017, we rocked the solar eclipse in Carbondale, the eclipse crossroads of America. We had so much fun meeting new friends and geeking out about science in southern Illinois that we are headed back there in 2018!

The Galaxy Ride team will make their way from Chicago to towns both big and small. Our audiences will do some observing through a telescope, touch a REAL piece of the Moon, talk to an astronomer, and have fun with space science activities. It will be a blast!

Like us on Facebook and watch for updates on Twitter, @AdlerPlanet and #AdlerGalaxyRide, to see where Galaxy Ride will go!
