Presentation:

 

"A Look at the Jovian Satellites: Worlds of Fire and Ice"
The satellites of Jupiter and Saturn are, in many ways, more intriguing than their host planets. Among them is the most volcanically active body in the solar system, a subsurface ocean with the potential for life, lakes and rivers of ethane, and salt water geysers.

About our speaker:

  Mr. Kader last spoke to our membership at the New Franklin City Hall on Friday October 27, 2017 when his topic was "Seeing Double: Double Stars for Fun & Science
An article appeared in the Nov 1, 2010 Plain Dealer about the Baldwin Wallace observatory, the Warner & Swasey refracting telescope with a 13-3/8 inch objective, and Gary Kader:  "Baldwin-Wallace College houses a little-known gem: a refracting telescope"
