    Reflecting the Universe:  The Role of Mirrors in Astronomy and History

    Mark Pendergrast, author of Mirror Mirror: The History of the Human Love Affair with Reflection, will explore the history of mirrors, from ancient times to giant mirrors in modern telescopes. 
    Along the way he will introduce fascinating characters such as John Dee, the scientific advisor to Queen Elizabeth I, who believed in talking to angels in magic mirrors.  But of course he will focus on the development of reflecting telescopes, starting with Isaac Newton, then William Herschel, George Ritchey, George Elliot Hale, Roger Angel's Mirror Lab in Tucson, and the Hubble Space Telescope.
