On August 15, 2018, at the Recreational Astronomy Night meeting of the Toronto Centre, Mehdi Bozzo-Rey gave a presentation on how to explore the Solar System using data from NASA's interplanetary space probes. He focused on the probe "New Horizons" which explored Pluto and showed how he was able to process the images to create his own composite image of Pluto and demonstrated how easy it is, using the data, to calculate an accurate scientific measurement of its features. Mehdi Bozzo-Rey is a member of Toronto Centre. The meeting was held at the Ontario Science Centre.
