ABOUT THE SERIES

The NASA’s Universe of Learning Science Briefings are professional learning telecons for the informal science education community, done in partnership with the NASA’s Museum & Informal Education Alliance. These monthly thematic briefings highlight current NASA astrophysics explorations and discoveries from across the suite of NASA astrophysics missions. NASA scientists and engineers provide contemporary science results, and are able to respond to listener questions during the telecon. NASA-developed education and outreach resources, matched to the monthly theme, are included in every briefing.

In order to participate in the telecon and ask questions of the scientists, please join NASA’s Museum & Informal Education Alliance at https://informal.jpl.nasa.gov/museum/.
