Starry Messengers: The Trailer

Jump to Comments

You have a little bit less than a month left to catch our current exhibition, Starry Messengers: Signs and Science from the Skies, before it closes on May 2nd. If you’d like a sneak peek, this short video features a conversation among Houghton’s John Overholt, the curator of the exhibition, Sara Schechner, Curator of Harvard’s Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, and Professor Emeritus Owen Gingerich. The trailer is also a preview for a forthcoming HarvardX course on the history of prediction in various forms.
