Join AFM*Radio Skyguide Marleen Bryan
on September 6th, 2010 at 1800 GMT (2 PM EDT) for a one hour long
multimedia webcast on “Astronomy & Chess!” brought to you by our
partner Global-Rent-a-Scope (GRAS).
While perhaps not immediately apparent, there are many similarities between the science and art of chess and astronomy.
Dr. Christian Sasse, GRAS affiliate
(one of the affiliate owners that make up the worldwide GRAS network of
telescopes) will share his perspectives on astronomy. Dr. John Nunn,
chess grandmaster, and once ranked internationally in the top 10, will
speak of chess and his own interest in astronomy.
Both John and Christian will show images and videos using AFM*Radio’s Adobe Connect webcast room.
You can login 15 minutes before the program starts by following the link to: http://conferencecasting.na5.acrobat.com/gras/
The audio portion of this webcast will also be simulcast on AFM*Radio.
