Our search for exoplanets, planets outside our own solar system, has so far yielded thousands of strange new worlds but, none of them appear to be anything like our blue-green Earth.   Is our world truly special?  Or, maybe, the question should be: how Earth-like does a planet need to be in order to be like Earth?  

Come join us for at the Central Arkansas Library's Ron Robinson Theater (100 River Market Ave) for an evening with Phil "Bad Astronomer" Plait, author of the Bad Astronomy blog and the books, "Bad Astronomy" and "Death From The Skies".   Phil can also be seen on PBS's Crash Course Astronomy as well as shows such as How The Universe Works and Space's Deepest Secrets.

The event is free and open to the public.  Get there early to get good seats.

Phil will be signing books after the event, which can be purchased onsite from CALS.

CAAS will also be giving out Apollo 11 50th anniversary backpacks, courtesy of NASA and the Arkansas Space Grant Consortium.
