Event Description

The speaker for our Jan 13, 2011 meeting will be Nobel Prize laureate Dr. John C. Mather of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre.  His talk is titled: “From the Big Bang to the Nobel Prize and on to the James Webb Space Telescope and the discovery of alien life.”  It should be a fascinating evening.

The Vancouver Centre of the R.A.S.C. meets at 7:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month, downstairs in the auditorium of the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre. Each meeting usually has a program which is a blend of current astronomical research and local amateur activities. The meeting is followed by an informal gathering at the Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory for the three “c’s”; coffee, cookies and conversation. Visitors are welcome to attend most of our meetings, which are free.
