I just got back from performing my Galileo Galilei the Starry Messenger
at the Space Telescope Science Institute at Johns Hopkins University. It was a family event for middle school students interested in science and technology. We had a very good audience with lots of questions for Galileo. Before visiting STScI, I visited a school in the DC area and stopped in DC for a look.
The inauguration took quite a toll on the National Mall. The grass is practically gone and the "potta potties" went from the Washington Monument to the Capitol. All was quite though and I was able to visit the Air and Space Museum, the National Arboretum and take a walk around the Capitol building. Hopefully I'll get back to DC again soon and can hit some more of the museums (they're free).
Next Monday, I'm at the Keene Public Library
as part of their celebration of the International Year of Astronomy and the "Visions of the Universe" exhibit. Many actors look for jobs to supplement their acting income, I'm fortunate to supplement mine with more acting.
