Hawkeyes in Space

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

The Doctor isn't the only space traveler, Space physicist George Hospodarsky will speak about the University of Iowa's involvement in the space program from the 1950s to the present.

The Doctor isn't the only space traveler, Space physicist George Hospodarsky will speak about the University of Iowa's involvement in the space program from the 1950s to the present.  

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Iowa has played an important role in space exploration since the 1950's. Starting with Professor James Van Allen's instrument on the first US satellite, Explorer 1, over 70 spacecraft have included instruments built at the University of Iowa. These instruments have contributed to numerous scientific results, from the discovery of Earth's Van Allen radiation belts, to detecting the edge of our solar system. We will explore the rich history of the department and current involvement in space research, and discuss what is on the horizon for today’s Hawkeyes in Space.

A Doctor Who Week event for teens and adults.
