Adventures of a Vatican Astronomer

Guy Consolmagno

Part of the Summer Events at The Lauriston Jesuit Centre

Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ, Director of the Vatican Observatory, is both a Jesuit brother and a planetary scientist at the Vatican Observatory, splitting his time between the meteorite collection in Rome and the Vatican telescope in Arizona. Thanks to his Vatican connections, his work has sent him around the world several times to dozens of countries and every continent (including a meteorite hunting expedition to Antarctica).

In this talk he will share some of those adventures, and reflect on the larger meaning of our common experience as scientists... not only what we do, but why we do it.
