MIT Building 35
127 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts
The Secular Society of MIT will celebrate Carl Sagan Day this year, to honor and remember the popular astronomer and science communicator Carl Sagan, with a talk by Julien de Wit, an exoplanet researcher in the MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences. Dr de Wit, who has developed and applied innovative analysis techniques to map exoplanet atmospheres, will present and discuss his work on investigating solar systems — including the famed TRAPPIST-1 system — beyond our own, placing our own pale blue dot within a cosmic perspective.

WHEN: Tuesday, NOV/14, 7:30pm
WHERE: 35-225 (2nd floor, 127 Mass Ave, whereis.mit.edu/?go=35)
Social time follows. We will serve apple pie and mocktail cosmos (both references to Sagan's work).
Turtlenecks and/or casual blazers suggested.
One lucky attendee will go home with a Sagan reference art poster we will raffle out at the end of the event.
Free entry and refreshments.
