    Event Description: Based on his own experiences, award-winning Luis Fuerte dives into the memories of people and places of the making of California’s Gold with his book, Louie, Take a Look at This!: My Time with Huell Howser (Prospect Park Books, 2017). In an embracing of the dissimilarities of Fuerte and Howser’s personalities and backgrounds, Fuerte shows diversity at its best, as in his eyes it’s the strength behind their fantastic match. Also, stories of everyday people and those working behind the scenes reveal the special personal elements that make up the legendary look at California and its true riches.

    Luis Fuerte is the five-time Emmy-winning former cameraman for California’s Gold and other Huell Howser shows. Born in San Bernardino, Fuerte became a cameraman after two years in the US Navy and attending LA Valley College to study television engineering. Fuerte has been named Latino of the Year and has won many other awards, including the Golden Mic. He retired after forty-eight years in television and now lives with his wife in Rialto, California.

    Bring your friends, or just bring yourself to our Lecture Series once a month. Speakers will present topics of special interest for high desert residents. The lectures start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5 or free for Museum Members/Sponsors. Beverages will be served.

    SKY’S THE LIMIT TALK ON EXOPLANETS: ANOTHER PALE BLUE DOT
    Inside the SETI Institute’s Search for Exoplanets

    Event date: Friday, February 21, 2020
    Event time: 7:00 pm
    Event venue: Founders’ Hall, 29 Palms Historical Society
    6760 National Park Drive, Twentynine Palms CA

    Event description:
    Dr. Franck Marchis, of the SETI Institute, presents a talk on the search for planets beyond our Solar System – referred to as exoplanets. The presentation, hosted by Sky’s The Limit Observatory & Nature Center, is open to the public, but space is limited. Attendees should pre-purchase tickets ($10 each) on line at https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/NzUyOTA=

    Founded in 1984, SETI stands for the “search for extraterrestrial intelligence.” The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe and the evolution of intelligence.

    In only two decades, scientists have gone from the mere speculation about exoplanets to being able to observe them through a variety of methods. Dr. Marchis will discuss new and sophisticated projects designed to provide images of these exoplanets. Future instruments could soon deliver an image of a cousin of Earth or another Pale Blue Dot – a planet similar to our own.

    The talk will be followed by a demonstration of the Unistellar eVscope, an innovative robotic telescope developed in partnership with the SETI Institute. The demonstration will take place on the campus of Sky’s The Limit Observatory & Nature Center at 9697 Utah Trail, a short drive south from the lecture hall.

    Limited reservations are available for an optional dinner with Dr. Marchis at 5 pm at the 29 Palms Inn, and attendees are responsible for their own meal. If interested in dinner please RSVP at 760-490-9561 before Wednesday, February 19.

    Dr. Marchis is a Senior Scientist at the SETI Institute and Chief Scientific Officer at Unistellar. Marchis earned his PhD in Astrophysics at the Université Paul Sabatier, France, in 2000. He is a planetary astronomer with 22 years of experience in academic, international, and non-profit scientific institutions and has conducted multiple research projects in a wide range of areas. He is best known for his discovery and characterization of multiple asteroids, his study of volcanism on Io (a moon of Jupiter), and imaging of exoplanets – planets around other stars. In April 2007, the asteroid numbered 1989SO8 was named “(6639) Marchis” in honor of his work in the field of multiple asteroids.

    Work at the SETI Institute is anchored by three centers: the Carl Sagan Center for the Study of Life in the Universe (research), the Center for Education, and the Center for Outreach. A key research contractor to NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF), SETI collaborates with industry partners throughout Silicon Valley and beyond.

    The SETI Institute is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit scientific research institute headquartered in Mountain View, California.
