A bit of the backstory

Galaxy Ride was conceived by Adler astronomer and TED Senior Fellow Lucianne Walkowicz. In September 2015,  a small team from the Adler Planetarium made the 360-mile journey down Historic Route 66 from Chicago to St. Louis, making stops at libraries along the way to do hands-on, minds-on science activities.
