Solar System Social is a space-themed speaker series that brings
exciting ideas and research from the field of planetary science to the
general public in form of short, informative, and interesting talks
that last about 20 minutes each. This event features astrophysicist
Dr. Matt Russo who will present "The Music of the Spheres (Now For
Human Ears!)". From a supergroup of exoplanets to the night sky's
brightest hip-hop stars, Matt will explore the deep connection between
music and astronomy and how it can be used to bring the wonders of the
universe to a wider audience.
Kristen Cote will give a talk titled "The ExAlta-1 Cube Satellite and the QB50 Mission". She was the Mechanical Team Co-Lead of the AlbertaSat group who designed, built, and launched a cubesat earlier this year. She continues to monitor the satellite from the York University ground station. You can catch Kristen on the York Universe radio show on astronomy.fm Mondays at 9PM. Comedian Joel Buxton will deliver a set of space-themed comedy. Host David Hamilton will deliver a short talk about the search for life on Mars.
