Pinhead Punk Science: How Cold Can You Go? Spectacular Space Science
Pinhead Punk Science: “How Cold Can You Go? Spectacular Space Science” with Awesome Astronomer – Christopher Crockett. Ever tried to hammer a nail into a piece of wood...with a banana? What would happen to your fingers if you were standing on the far side of the Moon? When things get really cold, they start to act a lot different than you're used to. We'll use liquid nitrogen to explore what happens to everyday objects when they hit the bottom of the temperature scale. If you think winters in Colorado are cold, wait until you see what a typical day on Neptune is like!
From 5–6pm at the Telluride High School Cafeteria. Suggested donation: $1 per Punk.
