With the recent discovery of an Earth-like planet orbiting the star Proxima Centauri, the nearest habitable world beyond our solar system might be right on our doorstep. Celebrate this revolutionary find with Boise State’s Physics Department. At 7:30 p.m., Prof. Brian Jackson will talk about the planet in the Multi-Purpose Classroom Building, Lecture Hall 101, right across the street from the Brady Street Parking Garage. Then at 8:30 p.m., you'll star-gaze on Boise State's quad, next to Albertson Library.
