Griffith Observatory,Part 2 Taped Interviews, Friday, 9-14-12


Guests:  Dr. Laura Danly;  Anthony Cook.  Topics:  Griffith Observatory walking tour.  You are invited to comment, ask questions, and discuss the Space Show program/guest(s) on the Space Show blog, https://thespaceshow.wordpress.com.  Comments, questions, and any discussion must be relevant and applicable to Space Show programming. Transcripts of Space Show programs are not permitted without prior written consent from The Space Show (even if for personal use) & are a violation of the Space Show copyright.  Welcome to Part Two of the taped interviews regarding my visit to the Los Angeles Area for the AIAA Space 2012 Conference and more.  Our Part 2 interviews took place at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA.  We started out with a discussion of the very interesting history of both Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory, features, and facilities of the Observatory, all with the curator, Dr. Laura Danly.  The passion, emotion, excitement, and scientific nature of Dr. Danly comes through in this interview and I can assure you, it translates into an incredible museum and science center which I hope all of you will visit if you have the opportunity to do so.  Our second segment was a walking tour with Anthony Cook who took us (my son and his friend were me on this assignment) to the roof, the telescope domes, and the solar viewing area inside the building.  Prior to the actual walking tour, we visited the area detailing the planets, a space jewelry collection and lots more.  You can learn much more about the Griffith Observatory by visiting their website, www.griffithobservatory.org

Please post your comments on the blog.  If you want to email either Dr. Danly or Mr. Cook, send your note to me and I will forward it for you.
