Astrophysicist Jeremiah Ostriker tells the story of how the evidence for the so-called “Lambda-Cold Dark Matter” model of cosmology has been gathered by generations of scientists. Book signing will follow.

American Museum of Natural History’s Edges of Space

Presented by American Museum of Natural History


The Voyager spacecraft recently encountered the “edge” of the solar system, beginning its journey through interstellar space. The Sun and Earth exist in the galactic outskirts, closer to our galaxy’s periphery than its center. What distinguishes a dwarf planet from a planet? In this program, we will explore the wheres and whys of stars, galaxies, and the universe, and discuss astronomical “species” such as planets, brown dwarfs, and star clusters. Join us as we go to, through, and beyond the edges of space!
