While most folks have their feet planted firmly on the ground, IC Physics professor Luke Keller is engaged in observing space from a flying telescope. In collaboration with NASA and other researchers, Luke works aboard the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA, an eight-foot-wide, 17-ton telescope situated within a modified Boeing 747. Work in the stratosphere and beyond with this and other observatories to study the formation of stars and planets has led him to wonder about how we define "the environment." Conclusion: It does not stop at the Earth's atmosphere! Luke will describe his work and how he came to be working on a flying telescope, then turn to a discussion of the "homo-sapiens-sphere," (also known as space debris and space "junk"), which now reaches to the edge of our solar system.

Using true stories of those behind bars and of the families — including her own — whose loved ones are incarcerated, she argues compellingly that our broken punishment system needs a major overhaul. With 2.3 million men, women, and teens currently behind bars, families and communities — especially poor communities of color — are often shattered.
