PSI’s CosmoQuest team participated in the St. Louis Astronomy Festival, where an exhibit of Lego spacecraft attracted lots of attention. Pamela Gay, Tanya Kuzara, Lindsey Odom and Annie Wilson  participated. Gay gave a presentation titled Beautiful Science: Combining the Art of Astrophotography with the Pursuit of Science Data. 

“All of the LEGO – especially the Orrery – really attracted attention and we were able to chat with quite a few folks,” said PSI’s Annie Wilson.
