Canada has a long history of making significant contributions to the field of astronomy. Currently, there is an exciting prospect of a Canadian-led space telescope known as the CASTOR mission. This ultra-violet telescope aims to complement other cutting-edge missions like Euclid and the Roman Space Telescope in the 2030s.

The upcoming KPL astronomy talk will feature Cam Morgan, a graduate student at the University of Waterloo’s Waterloo Centre for Astrophysics. Cam is a member of the CASTOR Science Team and his research focuses on understanding how galaxies evolve and form new stars. In addition to his research, Cam is passionate about science outreach and communication, regularly conducting public tours of the Gustav Bakos Observatory at the University of Waterloo.

By attending the WCA-KPL Astronomy Talk series, participants can stay informed about the latest advancements in space-based astronomy and learn about the exciting developments happening in the field. It serves as a platform for researchers like Cam Morgan to share their insights and engage with the public in discussing the wonders of the universe.
