The journey that is science is all too often lost on students, many of whom acquire the idea that science is recorded in its totality in textbooks. Yet the most exciting scientific adventures occur with the unexpected! Continually "rewriting the textbooks" is fundamental to the nature of science. Your scientist-guide will illuminate examples of recent and ongoing changing understanding at the frontiers of science. Examples from space science, in particular, will be used to highlight the wonder and grandeur of unexpected scientific mysteries – and the joy of simply being wrong!
