The Honourable Greg Rickford, Minister of State, Science and Technology: Find a way to keep the NRC's "Centre of the Universe" visitors centre open
Centre of the Universe and Plaskett Telescope open May 3rd
May 3, 2014 — The Dominion Astrophysical Observatory will be open this Saturday night, May 3rd, from 8 to 11. Tours will be given every half hour and the Centre of the Universe will be open. If it isn't cloudy then the Plaskett Telescope will be used to capture images, and there will be viewing outside through telescopes brought by volunteers. Big thanks go to the local centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada for making this happen.
