Space Talk Series | Montecito
Kids and families are invited to join former NASA scientist Tom Farr for a series to learn about our solar system: the sun and its 8 planets (and Pluto!), including our own planet Earth. We’ll also cover the leftovers of the solar system like asteroids, meteors, and comets before traveling beyond our solar system to planets around other stars. Is E.T. out there?
- 10/6 - Intro to the Planets
- 10/20 - Earth and Its Moon

Tom Farr has degrees in geology from CalTech and the University of Washington and worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory from 1975-2020. He currently teaches Planetary Geology at Santa Barbara City College, hikes and runs local trails, and sails the Channel.
