Category: MC Events

Published: Oct 27 2015 12:00AM

On Friday November 6, in the planetarium on Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. The astrolabe is a very ancient astronomical computer for solving problems related to time and the position of the Sun and stars. Most matter is made up of spin 1/2 fermions. You can learn more here: http://astrolabes.org

Matter, electrons, quarks, neutrinos, and protons and neutrons, and many other elementary particles, but not all are fermions, spin particles, see URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermion. The mathematical geometry projection and algebra are the same.

Say what? Come see the connections among these topics and how the planetarium can be used as a large astrolabe. The show is free and open to the public. Directions and information can be found here: http://www2.montgomerycollege.edu/departments/planet/
