The Starry Messenger

Wednesday, December 17, 2008 @ 4:00 PM

Junior Academy members, join us for a premier presentation of The Starry Messenger, by Rick Foster about Galileo Galilei directed by Nicholas Tamarkin with Pam Reckamp and John Bratkowski.

At 4:00, we will be treated to a Space Sciences talk by Richard Heuermann, Outreach Coordinator, NASA Missouri Space Grant Consortium, Washington University, Earth & Planetary Sciences. Then the play begins!

The play uses humor and drama to present equal measures of Galileo’s scientific discoveries, the conflicts between science and religion, an example of the scientific approach to the truth, and a touching relationship between a difficult but loving father and his devoted but strong daughter. This play has been a hit in California with younger audiences and adults alike.

To be held at Upstream Theater, 305 S. Skinker
