Join us for a showing of the documentary about Calvin astronomy professor Larry Molnar made by Communications professor Sam Smartt. Larry and Sam will also field some questions following the screening. https://www.luminous-film.com/ describes the film:
Astronomy Professor Larry Molnar believes he can find the unfindable a star that is about to explode.
When Larry and a small team of students stumble across a strange star, they embark on a dramatic journey of scientific discovery, which brings the unlikely team into the international spotlight. But others in the astronomical community are skeptical, and Larrys professional reputation hangs in the balance. In production since 2014, Luminous, a feature documentary by award-winning filmmaker Sam Smartt (Wagonmasters), follows Larrys journey to test his unprecedented prediction, knowing that its success or failure will unfold squarely in the international spotlight.
