NYIT Presents Art Exhibition and Lecture by Edward Belbruno

New York, N.Y. (March 23, 2011) – A distinguished author, artist, and space mathematician will share his insights on how art and space converge at NYIT on Thursday, March 31.

Edward Belbruno, Ph.D., president of Innovative Orbital Design, will kick off a one-week art exhibition with his lecture “The Art and Science of a Cosmic Visionary.” The event will feature artwork from his collection entitled “Edward Belbruno, Paintings of the Cosmos and Stellar Visions."

An innovative thinker, Belbruno holds patents on routes in space, as he has devised solutions to space travel challenges. His books include Fly Me to the Moon and Capture Dynamic and Chaotic Motions in Celestial Mechanics.

Belbruno joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., in 1985, and developed a breakthrough approach to space travel by using chaos theory. Now, he is a consultant for NASA.

Belbruno is also an oil painter who has been featured in exhibitions throughout the world.

Belbruno’s lecture is open to the NYIT community and the general public. The lecture will be held at 6 p.m. at the New Technology Building at 16 W. 61st St., 11th Floor in New York City. An opening reception for the art exhibition will follow the lecture. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

To attend, R.S.V.P. online, or contact Jennifer Mitchell at 212.261.1562 or jmitchel@nyit.edu for more information. This event is free, but an R.S.V.P. is necessary as space is limited.
