Celestron Video From USA Science & Engineering Festival

Nearly two months have passed since the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington D.C. The Planetary Society presence there was a huge success. We were hardly alone in this. Our friends and frequent collaborators at Celestron, maker of outstanding telescopes and other scientific instruments, also had a very popular booth. The company sponsored a big Stargazing Party at the National Air and Space Museum. 

Celestron has now posted a terrific YouTube video that dramatically captures the excitement of the Festival. It prominently features our own Emily Lakdawalla. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to check it out. It accomplishes what the Festival itself accomplished. You'll be inspired by the enthusiastic children, adults and organizations that have made science an important part of their lives.
