Astronomy on Tap (Cam Morgan and Cam Lawlor-Forsyth)

This month we'll hear from two University of Waterloo astronomers, researching the evolution of galaxies. Cam Morgan will speak about how the cosmic neighbourhood of galaxies impacts their life cycles, and Cam Lawlor-Forsyth will share how astronomers are using super-computers to learn more about galaxies than ever before.

WCA-KPL Public Talk - CASTOR: Canada's Flagship Space Telescope (Cam Morgan)

Canada has made significant contributions ever since the early days of space-based astronomy, and now the prospect of a flagship Canadian-led space telescope as a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope is alive and well. At this month's KPL astronomy talk, Cam Morgan will speak about the CASTOR mission, an ultra-violet telescope that promises to compliment other cutting-edge missions, such as Euclid and the Roman Space Telescope, throughout the 2030s.
