Wednesday, November 18, 2009 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm | Cost: FREE


Monthly meeting of the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers and a special screening of “BLAST!” Filmmaker Paul Devlin follows the story of his brother, Mark Devlin PhD, as he leads a tenacious team of scientists hoping to figure out how all the galaxies formed by launching a revolutionary new telescope under a NASA high-altitude balloon.

The film is about the crazy life of scientists. Their professional obsessions, personal and family sacrifices, and philosophical and religious questioning all give emotional resonance to a spectacular and suspenseful story of space exploration.
