Big History

Join MMA’s scientist-in-residence, Dr. Rich Blundell and Telescope Engineer Gary Walker, for a weekly Big History Storytelling at Loines Observatory. “Big History”, an academic discipline which examines history from the Big Bang to the present, has been pursued since the Renaissance. During this 90-minute visual lecture incorporating large scale videos and the Loines Observatory telescopes, Dr. Blundell will tell the fascinating story of the cosmos and our place in it. Gary Walker will supplement this offering with images from the James Webb Space Telescope and images of similar cosmic objects, captured at the Loines Observatory.

This program is designed to be interesting for inquisitive adults. This program meets at the Loines Observatory, 59 Milk Street Extension, Nantucket MA. Pre-registration is required for this event. In the case of inclement weather, we will cancel this program.
