Certificate of Presentation Dedication 
This Lecture in the Edwin P. Hubble Series of the Chicago Astronomical Society 
"Roving the Red Planet"
Presented by speaker Michelle Nichols, Master Educator at Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum
is hereby dedicated to Clara Ficarro
by James Cuca, nephew
Not from the stars do I my judgment pluck,
And yet methinks I have astronomy;
But not to tell of good or evil luck,
Of plagues, of dearths, or seasons' quality;
Nor can I fortune to brief minutes tell,
Pointing to each his thunder, rain, and wind,
Or say with princes if it shall go well
By oft predict that I in heaven find.
But from thine eyes my knowledge I derive,
And, constant stars, in them I read such art
As truth and beauty shall together thrive
If from thyself to store thou wouldst convert:
   Or else of thee this I prognosticate,
   Thy end is truth's and beauty's doom and date.
~ William Shakespeare, Sonnet XIV ~
