IDSW Presentation Description: The Story of our StarsThe stories of the stars are the oldest ever told. Humanity continues to make up stories about the stars in our galaxy and beyond. From Apollo’s flying ‘Sun Chariot’ to X-Files flying saucers, we continue to boldly go where we have gone before, which is to Infinity and Beyond! Our cultural expressions of the stars bring people into our mission. Marlin’s take on all things astronomical is lively, humorous and novel.
