Museum names new director

Sep 12, 2014

The Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science has chosen a new leader. 

The museum’s board of directors has hired Bryan Knicely to lead the facility.

The 45-year-old Knicely comes to Evansville after serving as executive director of the Coral Springs Museum of Art in Florida, where Congressman Ted Deutch nominated him for the 2015 National Medal for Museum Service.

The Ohio native will start his duties at the Evansville Museum in mid-October, more than a year and a half after long-time director John Streetman stepped down.

Solar storm could cause trouble

Sep 11, 2014

The science director at the Evansville Museum is keeping an eye on what scientists are calling an extreme solar storm heading toward Earth. 

Mitch Luman tells WNIN News it’s hard to predict whether or not the storm will cause much trouble on the planet.

Luman says the solar magnetic field can change the storm’s course and lessen the effects on earth.

The storm is considered extreme on forecasters' scale, but just barely. And while it may knock off power grids, damage satellites, and disrupt radio transmissions, it can also expand the northern lights.
