At the March 4 meeting of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, the feature program is the The Higgs Field. Professor Ray Stonecipher will explain this invisible energy field and discuss the Higgs Boson which recently has become the media darling of particle physics.
The 7 pm program will be held at the Stonecipher Astronomy Center at Crossroads at Big Creek, and is free and open to the public.
At the same time in the Collins Learning Center, Vickie Durst and Jim Baxter will present the Master Gardener lecture “Dahlias and Garden Tools.” The local speakers will have useful information for anyone interested in gardening. This program is also free and open to the public.
