Exploratorium After Dark | Pier 15
Join SOFIA scientists from NASA and the German SOFIA Institute (DSI) to hear about mirrors used in telescopes, especially the 100-inch mirror on board SOFIA. Learn about how the mirror was made, how and why it was put in a Boeing 747SP jetliner, and how it is isolated from the plane’s vibration, as well as some of the exciting science that has come out of the SOFIA mission.
Also join us for scientist-led activities in the Osher West Gallery throughout the evening.
