Monthly MAS Meeting – Featured Speaker David Falkner – ACEAP Ambassador

March 2, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST

The MAS will be hosting a hybrid in-person & ZOOM Monthly Meeting.  MAS meetings are free and open to the public. JOIN US!

Featured Speaker: David Falkner – ACEAP Ambassador, MAS NASA Ambassador and former MAS President
Topic: ACEAP 2022: My Amazing and Unexpected Journey to Visit the Research Telescopes in Chile

Dave was one of 10 people selected nationally to participate in ACEAP (Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassadors Program). His talk is about his 11-day experience in December visiting and staying at three major US-owned observatories in Chile: Cerro Pachón (home of the Gemini South telescope), Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO), and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) radio telescope. While at these facilities, Dave and the other ACEAP Ambassadors received extensive training about the instruments, the science, data products, and communicating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts. The program also introduced the ambassadors to the people and culture of Chile. Dave is excited to talk about this amazing experience.

COVID-19 PROTOCOL:  Masks are welcome, but not required at the Monthly Meeting.  Reminder if you are feeling ill or have been around someone who has been ill, PLEASE STAY HOME!!

Meeting Location:
AŊPÉTU TÉČA Education Center (formerly the Fairview Community Center)

You can probably hear best with a headset but your computer’s speaker and microphone will also work.

Dialing-in with a phone:

  • Meeting ID: 891 6552 7392
  • Passcode: 440941
  • Number: +1 312 626 6799 US (Chicago)

In order to ensure the most success we are asking everyone to follow a couple of rules:

  • Don’t turn on your camera – it sucks up bandwidth and we really don’t need to see you.
  • Keep your microphone muted until you are prompted during a question and answer session during the presentation. This will cut down background noise substantially.
  • You can request to ask a question in the chat area of the Meet and wait to be prompted by the moderator.

We hope you can join us.
Clear skies!
