Virtual Cosmic Nights: Gassy Giants 2020


If you missed H.R. MacMillan Space Centre’s previous virtual astronomy night, then you’re in luck—Cosmic Nights is returning this week.

This time, we’re exploring Gas Giants, the largest planets in our solar system. Our host Michael Unger will be joined by the Space Centre’s astronomer Rachel Wang, along with Dr. Shawn Brooks from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Dr. Brooks is currently working on the Juno mission, and the upcoming Europa Clipper mission.
