“I simply love talking with people about science,” says Dr. Rob Thacker, Director of the Science Outreach Centre. An internationally recognized researcher, who is also an Astronomy and Physics professor, Dr. Thacker received the Canadian Astronomical Society’s 2018 Qilak Award in recognition of his outstanding outreach work. He shares his knowledge via dozens of public lectures and weekly interviews on “Sounds of Science” (CBC NS), “Ottawa Today” (1310 News), and “Science Ship” on Rogers radio stations across the country.
