NASA and other agencies have an exciting array of spacecraft missions to small bodies in the Solar System: to intriguing asteroids (incluing some "potentially hazardous" asteroids whose orbits bring them into Earth's neighborhood), to an icy body in the outer Solar System beeyond Pluto, and even a demonstration of asteroid deflection as a planetary defense technique. Come hear about the mission encounters with small bodies that are happening in the next few months, and the missions being developed in the coming years.

Point of No Return: Black Holes

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Rancho Mirage Public Library
Community Room

There are places in the universe which hold more secrets than others—places which are apparently cut off from the rest of existence. These places may be entered; however, once inside nothing, not even light, can escape. It is by gravity that even light is prevented from escaping, and this property is what earns these places the title of black holes. Black holes are often discussed but poorly understood. Nevertheless, mankind has worked intently to peer behind the veil of the event horizon. What we have found not only bends space and time but also our understanding of how the universe works.

Below the Line: Anatomy of a Movie

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Rancho Mirage Public Library
Community Room

Meredith Jordan will be discussing her just-published book, Below the Line: Anatomy of a Successful Movie. The author was embedded on a major motion picture to follow the process from the inside. Last Vegas starred Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Mary Steenburgen but in these pages they play supporting roles. Instead readers follow an ensemble cast made up of the production designer, costumer supervisor, propmaster, and so forth, even the rock star who wrote the score. Director Jon Turteltaub (The Meg) centers the set while the unit production managers anchor the business. Bit players range from small companies like the crane operator and commercial airplane set builder to Panavision and Western Costumes. Below the Line proves movies are a collaborative art form. This is what it really takes to make a movie. 

Meredith Jordan spent 25 years working for small, medium and large news organizations on the East Coast before moving west. She lives in Rancho Mirage.
