Don’t Have a Cow, Man! You Can Learn About Astronomy with the Simpsons

The Natrona County Library and Casper Planetarium will host physicist Dr. David Gruber on Saturday, August 19, at 6:30 p.m. at the Natrona County Library. In some of the over 550 episodes which have been aired, the writers and creators of “The Simpsons” also included astronomical references and even dedicated entire episodes to space and astronomy. In his presentation Dr. Gruber will show excerpts from the hit TV series and discuss the astronomical content they contain. Dr. Gruber holds a BSc. and MSc. from the University of Vienna in Vienna, Austria as well as an IMPRS and Ph.D. from the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany.  This is a free presentation and all are welcome.
