Why Do We Look to the Heavens? @ Planetarium
Nov 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Why does the Vatican support an astronomical observatory? The roots of the Vatican Observatory go back to the Gregorian Reform of the Calendar in 1582, and its modern mission is to praise the Creator by doing good science. But this question masks a deeper question: why do individuals choose to spend their lives in pursuit of pure knowledge? The motivation behind our choices, both as individuals and as a society, affects the way we do science and ultimately the way we understand ourselves.
