Under the Microscope: A Conversation on Space Dust
On the evening of August 8, the cosmos and NYC are coming together.
Join Cosmic Dust Curator Jon Larsen, NASA’s Dr. Michael Zolensky and Elysian Brewery at “Under the Microscope: A Conversation on Space Dust,” to learn more about the science community’s most recent discoveries of extraterrestrial materials here on earth and the intriguing implications of these findings. The event will include a stunning showcase of Larsen’s own micrometeorite photography, chef-prepared appetizers, tastings of Space Dust IPA, and other exciting surprises! 21+ only. Space is limited.

Location: White Space at Agora Gallery 530 West 25th Street New York, NY 10001
Jon Larsen (Norwegian musician, photographer, author and scientific researcher) just proved what scientists had long dismissed as an urban legend: our world is covered with space dust, “tiny remnants from the solar system’s birth” that fall at a rate of more than 10 tons per day. These micrometeorites (or space dust) can be found everywhere from NYC rooftops to remote deserts. The cosmos are all around us, according to Jon. You just need to know where to look.
In a rare visit to the states, Larsen will be speaking about the implications of his discovery alongside NASA’s Cosmic Dust Curator Dr. Michael Zolenksy, sharing insights into what the cosmos are teaching us here on earth and how others than can join the hunt for these extraterrestrial particles (shown below).
