"Cosmic Explorations: at the Intersection of Science, Space, Art, and Culture"


The eleventh international conference from the series The Inspiration of Astronomical Phenomena, will focus on the intersection of science, humanities, art, and culture. Celestial phenomena have fascinated humanity for millennia, inspiring works of art, science, scholarship, and emerging technologies. Southern California has played a major, or even a central role in this arena over the past century. The conference goals are to provide scholars from various, disparate disciplines an opportunity to interact, gain new perspectives, and establish novel collaborations. Further goals are to celebrate the rich history and ongoing activities within these intersecting disciplines, while informing and inspiring the general public.

The Einstein Papers Project is pleased to join in supporting the Cosmic Explorations conference organized or sponsored in part by Caltech's Center for Data-Driven Discovery (CD3) and Astronomy Department, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Griffith Observatory, Huntington Library, ArtCenter College of Design, Carnegie Observatories, Caltech Optical Observatories (COO), Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO), and others. 02-06-20
