Summer Ash spent her childhood dragging friends and family out at all hours of the day or night to look up at the sky. As an adult, she channeled that passion into a research program seeking to understand the evolution of radio galaxies and galactic nuclei. Now, as the Director of Outreach for Columbia University’s Department of Astronomy, she’ll share tools, tips and tricks to help you discover all of the awe-inspiring sights waiting for you to simply look up at them.

The Discovery Room was made possible by a grant from the Edward John Noble Foundation.

Additional support has been provided by Joella and John Lykouretzos, the Ralph M. Cestone Foundation, Capital One Bank, the Rose M. Badgeley Charitable Trust, Nora and Ted Weinreich, the Ducommun and Gross Family Foundation, the Daneker Family, and the Larkin Family.
