The New York City Premiere of the Documentary BLAST!, featuring Penn's Balloon-Borne, High-Altitude Telescope
WHAT: The 2008 documentary film BLAST! follows a team of scientists, led by Mark Devlin, professor of astronomy and astrophysics, in their attempts to figure out how galaxies form by launching a revolutionary new telescope on a NASA high-altitude balloon.
The film follows cosmologists from Sweden to Antarctica as they attempt — and fail and try again — to launch the high-altitude telescope above the earth’s atmosphere.
