The Calgary Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada is hosting Robert J. Sawyer for the evening of Thursday, March 15, 2007, for the annual Peter Sim Lecture.

Astronomy and Science Fiction

Exploring strange new worlds happens as often at a writer’s keyboard as it does at an astronomer’s eyepiece. From exploring the worlds of our solar system to the planets of other stars, from bases on Mars to the heat-death of the universe, science-fiction writers always get there first, and Canada’s leading SF writer will be our tour guide as we look at some of their-and his-visions.

The meeting is open and free to the public; in fact, the public is strongly encouraged to attend. So come on by and hear a fantastic speaker on a favourite topic!

Where: Discovery Dome at the Telus World of Science (formerly the Calgary Science Centre)

When: 7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 15, 2007
