Welcome to the Pathfinder Library!
If you’ve joined us for a CIERA event, or have found your way here from your interest in astronomy, this custom library is something we hope will help you learn more about the Universe around us.
We’re excited to provide this growing library of educational brochures, written by CIERA astronomers about interesting topics in astronomy, as well as the scientific work we do here at Northwestern.
What do Pathfinder Brochures do?
- explain a topic in public-level language
- show exciting images
- tie back to research initiatives at CIERA
- recommend varied resources (books, websites, YouTube videos, etc.) for even further learning opportunities.
If you have an idea for a topic for a Pathfinder, we’d like to hear from you. Please send us an email at CIERAfirstname.lastname@example.org.
