This is an all-ages presentation on the roles of robots and astronauts in space exploration and on how anyone can explore space with the help of a computer through web sites and free downloadable software such as Stellarium (planetarium program, www.stellarium.org) and Orbiter (space flight simulator, www.orbitersim.com). When I do this presentation, I typically present live demos of Orbiter and Stellarium, but I also have a number of supplemental slides at the end showing screen shots of the many things you can do with Orbiter.
I have presented this talk as a volunteer NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador and as a member of the Aldrich Astronomical Society in Central Massachusetts.
