'little green men' to premiere at WVU on September 29th

No, it isn’t about aliens. While the title of the upcoming documentary “little green men” suggests an extra-terrestrial theme, it actually features life in our own backyard.

The film showcases student participants in the  Pulsar Search Collaboratory, a joint project between  West Virginia University and the  National Radio Astronomy Observatory. The high school students search for pulsars, or exotic stars, using radio astronomy data from the  Green Bank Telescope in Pocahontas County, W.Va. Over the past nine years, the students have discovered seven pulsars.

Follow their journey through outer space on September 29 at 6 p.m. in the  Mountainlair’s Gluck Theatre. A reception and Q&A will follow featuring director/producer Sarah JM Kolberg, producer and WVU astrophysicist Maura McLaughin, WVU astronomer Duncan Lorimer, NRAO education director Sue Ann Heatherly, high school educators and student participants.
