I’ll Wonder, Observe, And Discover With Michelle Any Time!

With playful astrophysicist and Adler Planetarium President Michelle Larson

As president, Michelle Larson playfully connects Adler Planetarium to kids, scientists, internet sleuths, Obama, professionals, and more.

The Adler Planetarium hired the perfect woman to be President.

Michelle Larson understands how to make science fun and grow a network of support in Chicago and around the world.

Loved interviewing her yesterday and looking forward to amplifying all the good that she will do through Adler. I’ll wonder, observe, and discover with Michelle any time!

Star material in you

Starting Friday the 13th (always a lucky day for me), you can find proof that you originated in the stars at the Adler Planetarium.

Their exhibit “The Universe: A Walk Through Space and Time” demonstrates that material from elsewhere in the universe is inside our bones and bodies. It also addresses big questions – like how did we get here and are we alone?

How cool is this – you truly have star power inside you!
