After Apollo

Hi Everyone,

Fifty years ago, humanity made the first successful attempt to personally visit another celestial body. But since then, we have ventured no further than near-Earth orbit, one thousand times closer than going to the Moon. So when WILL humanity finally follow up on its first step towards being a truly space-faring species? Join us as we explore this and other questions on Saturday, July 6th at the David Dunlap Observatory.

July 6th 9:00pm – 11:30pm 

July 6th 10:00pm -12:30am

Hope to see you there!

An Evening With Astronaut Dr. Dave Williams

Hello All,

This Friday we will have a special guest speaker at DDO’s astronomy family night!

An Evening With Astronaut Dr. Dave Williams, Friday June 7, 2019, 9pm – Presentation and Book Signing

We are pleased to welcome Canadian astronaut Dr. Dave Williams, Canada’s spacewalking record holder, to the David Dunlap Observatory (DDO) to talk about his personal experiences as an astronaut, aquanaut and former director of Space and Life Sciences at NASA.  He is the author of “Defying Limits: Lessons from the Edge of the Universe” — an inspirational, uplifting, and life-affirming memoir about passion, resilience and living to the fullest.  And for members of the younger audience, he has collaborated with co-author Loredana Cunti on a series of exciting children’s books. Dr. Dave will be available for book signing after his presentation. Copies of his books will be available for purchase during the evening.

Hope to see you there!
