Upcoming Events


CLARA movie night - Nov 19, 6:00pm, PHY 150

CLARA is a grounded sci-fi drama that follows an exoplanet researcher and his assistant who make a profound discovery in exoplanet research. It closely resembles the story of the first exoplanet ever imaged (HR 8799). The director has engaged the help of several professors of Astrophysics to ensure that the science in the film is as accurate as possible. The movie will be out in theaters November 29th, so you'll be able to see the movie before it releases. Admission is free for the event and there will be free popcorn!

Space News #3: Human Analogue Missions w/ special guest Dr. Melissa Battler - Nov 22, 6:00pm, PHY 308

Space News is Waterloo Space Society's undergraduate astronomy journal club where we discuss the latest developments in space science. This week we have a special guest speaker joining us to share her experiences with the exciting world of human analogue missions, which simulate otherworldly environments here on Earth.

Our special guest, Dr. Melissa Battler, is an Adjunct Research Professor in Western University's Department of Earth Sciences and the Manager of Space Science, Education and Outreach for Mission Control Space Services. She also founded the Waterloo Space Society back when she was an undergraduate student here at the University of Waterloo.

Popcorn will also be provided, so be sure to come out!
