The Ebor Lectures: Br Guy Consolmagno

Adventures of a Vatican Astronomer (Family Event)

No scientist is a Spock-like android; a scientist’s work is as intuitive, and just as full of human foibles, as a painting, a symphony, or a prayer. Br Guy will discuss being a plantary scientist at the Vatican, how he collects meteorites in Rome and his his work in Arizona using the Vatican telescope.

Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ, is a Jesuit brother, Director of the Vatican Observatory and the President of the Vatican Observatory Foundation whose research studies meteorites and asteroids. Along with more than 200 scientific publications, he is the author of six popular astronomy books.

In 2014 he received the Carl Sagan Medal from the American Astronomical Society Division for Planetary Sciences for excellence in public communication in planetary sciences.
