Engineering For Space Exploration
How do people engineer the technology that explores outer-space, and why the heck do we care about exploring space anyway?  Those are the two extremely common and important questions that sometimes get confused or lost in translation when members of the science community and the general public interact.  This talk will attempt to answer these questions and more from the perspective of an engineering PhD student currently enrolled in Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration.

Speaker Bio:
Alex Miller is currently a 3rd year Exploration Systems Design PhD student at ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration.  He earned his Bachelor's Degree in aviation and has over 300 hours of flight time in small aircraft.  Before coming to Arizona he did brief stints at three different NASA facilities.  He is an all around space enthusiast who loves talking science with anyone who is interested!

Our traveling exhibition "Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science" is also open during Adults' Night Out and available for an additional charge!

Art 360 will feature the 'Best of 2014' artists. Guests can connect in a personal and relatable way to each story that is told through Art360's 2014 featured artists including Katie Davison, Julia Jones, Chelsea Davis, Dean Reynolds and Lisa Albinger. Don't miss the unique opportunity to see their work come to life on the dome of the planetarium.
