Turner Park Library: The Past, Present and Future of Planet 9

Thursday, September 28, 2017 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm

Pluto has always been the favourite of many who have cast their thoughts out to the stars and planets. More than that though, it has played a key role in our understanding of how our solar system is formed and it may be the key to further exploration of our neighbourhood of space. In this richly illustrated presentation we explore its history, our recent discoveries and how it may lead us to one of the greatest astronomical discoveries of the 21st century.

John Gauvreau was the astronomy instructor at Mohawk College for 20 years and has spoken at a wide variety of venues, including schools, libraries, conservation areas, churches, the McMaster University planetarium and the Ontario Science  Centre. He created and operates Galileo‚Äôs Classroom, an in-school interactive program aimed at the grade 6 space science unit, has sat on the national council of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and currently volunteers for the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers and others.
