Event Details

Start your day with a bit of science and coffee! Introducing Science with a Perk: short, informal programs, where there is no such thing as a dumb question, which encompass the topics of engineering, medicine and technology presented by leading experts, at a coffee house. It hardly matters what the topic is–if local scientists are working on it and they care about it, you will find it at Science with a Perk!

Scientists have long dreamed of mimicking photosynthesis and use the energy from sunlight to create fuel from CO2 and water. On December 12 we’ll learn how carbon dioxide might be made into fuel with Professor of Chemistry Jeff Sieler from the University of Southern Indiana.

Science with a Perk will take place regularly at the Honey Moon Coffee Company on the second Wednesday in June, September & December. The Honey Moon Coffee Company is located at 612 Weinbach Avenue (corner of Weinbach and Lincoln Avenues). The event starts at 8:30 AM and is admission-free.

Event Details

The first people to see the Earth from the Moon were not poets, artists or scientists. They were astronauts. The view afforded to Apollo 8 astronauts Frank Borman, James Lovell and William Anders as they viewed our planet rise from behind the limb of the Moon in December, 1968 was an iconic moment fifty years ago. The Apollo 8 astronauts recount their memories of capturing the first images of Earth rising from behind another world in the film EARTHRISE. The 29-minute documentary evokes the awe of seeing Earth framed against the blackness of space. Three showings of the film EARTHRISE will be screened during Christmas week, December 26, 27 and 28. Screenings will take place at 3:00 PM in the Koch Immersive Theater. Tickets will be $5 for Museum Members, and $7 for Not-Yet Members or included with Museum admission for Not-Yet Members.
