We know you won’t want to miss our next event:

What: Priyamvada Natarajan, professor of astronomy and physics at Yale University, will speak on her book "Mapping the Heavens: The Radical Scientific Ideas That Reveal the Cosmos." She will recount the evolution of celestial map-making and will show how maps literally track our ever-evolving cosmic view, tracing our understanding of the universe, its contents and its evolution.

When: Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 6:00 – 7:00 pm

Where: This free and open-to-the-public event will be held at the headquarters of Avenues: The World School, 17th Floor, 11 East 26th St. (between Madison and Fifth Avenues) RSVP to MapSocietyNY@gmail.com
