Seasons of Sharing – Poetry Reading

In the book Seasons of Sharing six global partners create poetry that is immediate, intimate, and modern, in an ancient poetic form. While exploring the richness of seasons, the book metaphorically visits incidents such as the Arab Spring, climate change, and urban violence.  Joyce Brinkman, one of the partners and former Indiana Poet Laureate, joins us for a reading of some of the poems from the book and will share thoughts about collaboration.

How Big is the Universe?

How big is the sun?  How many stars are there and how far away are they?  How big is a galaxy?  What are the most distant objects we can see in the universe?  We know it’s big but most of us don’t realize just how vast the universe really is.  Using models and slides presenter Paul Walorski will present a series of conceptual scale models to illustrate relative sizes and distances of the planets, stars and galaxies.  Walorski taught Introductory Physics and Astronomy classes at IUPUC for 27 years and is also a Cummins retiree.
