Astronomy isn't just about looking up at the sky. The Adler Planetarium's Michelle Nichols delves deep into the lessons that astronomy can teach us about our own world and gives an update on when (and why) we're hoping to finish the "race to Mars." Plus: the surprising relationship many scientists have with religion.
As Director of Public Observing, Michelle leads the Adler Planetarium's various telescope and sky observing efforts, including the "'Scopes in the City" telescope outreach program, free nighttime observing in the Doane Observatory via "Doane at Dusk," Adler's telescope volunteer program, and much more.
