President’s Message – October 2013

Posted by as President's Message

About the only thing to report to have happened since last month is that Jim Hesser and Eric Chisholm, on behalf of the NRC/DAO, UVic, and RASC Victoria Centre, submitted a proposal to the Royal British Columbia Museum seeking the creation of an exhibit to highlight the history of astronomy in British Columbia. It was hoped that the opening of the exhibit would coincide with GA 2014, and that it would feature artifacts, photographs, and history relating to First Nations, contributions to modern astronomy by astronomers at the DAO and UVic, and public outreach efforts by the Centre of the Universe, UVic and the RASC Victoria Centre.

Unfortunately, in spite of the fine efforts of Jim and Eric, we were told that the museum was “full up” for next year, and strapped for funds.
