Tour of the Solar System with SpaceEngine – Bob Trembley

September 26 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Virtual Event

SpaceEngine is an amazing 3D simulator app for Windows that allows you to fly practically anywhere in the universe! You can fly through Saturn’s rings, land on the Moon – at the Apollo landing sites, or completely break the laws of physics and fly faster than the speed of light to the black hole at the center of our galaxy – and live to tell the tale!

Bob Trembley gives a repeat of his tour of our solar system with SpaceEngine, showing you the wonders – and in some cases bizarre features, of some objects in the Sun’s planetary system. SpaceEngine uses beautiful high-rez imagery from NASA missions when rendering solar system bodies.

Bob is the 2020 outreach officer of the Warren Astronomical Society, a volunteer NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassadorblogger and factotum for the Vatican Observatory Foundation. Bob is fantastically interested in asteroids and near-Earth objects (NEOs), and a HUGE fan of space simulation apps; he is determined to improve the teaching of astronomy and Space History throughout Michigan, and the U.S.
