A new mini-documentary created by the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) about the Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) features Lowell astronomers at work aboard the modified Boeing 747 SP during the June 2011 Pluto occultation. You’ll see Dr. Ted Dunham, Tom Bida, Peter Collins, and Brian Taylor (BU).
The video, titled SOFIA: Stars and the Space Between, will be playing in the Black Hole Theater at AMNH for the next six months. The museum is located in at Central Park West and 79th Street, New York, NY, 10024-5192.
