The wonder of science, as opposed to religion, is that we can follow nature beyond the evidence of our senses in an open minded fashion, where pre-conceptions disappear in light of fascinating new discoveries about the cosmos. Almost anywhere one starts, a grain of sand, a speck in the night sky, if one follows the evidence nature has provided us, new and wondrous hidden realities become exposed. To the ancients, the night sky seemed contiguous with rivers, lakes, and oceans on earth. This made sense at the time, given the evidence available, and the myths about nature that primitive societies developed to explain the world around them. I will take attendees instead on a tour of the real river in the sky, our Milky Way Galaxy, to explore what we now know, what we don’t know, and what we hope to learn about our home in the Universe.
