Space: the not so Final Frontier - Livestream

Date and Time




The Guelph Physics live stream autumn series continues Wednesday October 20th at 7:00 pm EDT with a discussion about Outer Space, and our role in its exploration!   
Our guests are Guelph Physics alum Dr. Scott VanBommel and the Communications Strategy & Canadian Space Policy Adviser of The Planetary Society Kate Howells.

Graduating from the University of Guelph with his PhD in 2017, the application of physics fundamentals to planetary science problems has taken Dr. Scott VanBommel off the southern edge of Google maps in search of space rocks, to Mars as part of multiple rover missions, and nearly above the Karman line as a shortlisted astronaut with the Canadian Space Agency.

Based in Guelph, Kate Howells works to engage The Planetary Society's myriad audiences in the adventure of space exploration. As Canadian Space Policy Advisor she guides The Planetary Society's positions on space policy and advocacy in Canada and connects Canadian Planetary Society members with opportunities to advocate for Canadian space science and exploration programs. She is also the author of Space Is Cool As F*** . 

As always, we will have a live Q&A where we will endeavour to answer your questions in real time!    

Please join us for this unique opportunity to chat about space with two of the most passionate science communicators in the field! If you are an undergraduate or graduate student looking for an interesting and compelling career, this will be the stream for you!    

Hosted by Orbax and streamed live to our YouTube channel and to Facebook @GuelphPhysics Wednesday, October 20th at 7:00 pm EDT.
