Poster for event on Dec 14th feature Nobel Laureate Art McDonald

Free and for all ages! Come out to learn about space, then see it for yourself through a 14″ telescope! This is also a great opportunity to meet Kingston RASC members and check out the McDonald Institute Visitor Center!

This month’s speaker is Arthur McDonald, a Nobel Prize Winning Particle Physicist at Queen’s University. His talk is titled: “Going 2km Underground to Study the Sun” in which he will explain what we can learn about the sun and the universe from deep underground in a high tech lab!
