The Kansas Cosmosphere will host a free, public presentation about local earthquakes with an expert in the field.
The presentation will feature Justin Rubinstein, a geophysicist with the United States Geological Survey (USGS). He will offer information about the recent string of local earthquakes and discuss their potential relation-ship to human activities, specifically those associated with the oil and gas industries.
Rubenstein will field questions from the audience after his virtual presen-tation. It will take place at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 in the first-floor banquet room at the Kansas Cosmosphere, 1100 N. Plum St., Hutchinson.
Other free events held at the Cosmosphere this month include “Coffee at the Cosmo” on Sept. 19, Smithsonian Museum Day on Sept. 21, Space Out Saturday on Sept. 21.
