Dr. Dave launches Mighty Mission Machines at the Ontario Science Centre

By Annick Staff Date: April 17, 2018


Calling all astronomy enthusiasts! On April 21, the Ontario Science Centre presents a full day of space-themed programs, including a nighttime Star Party, to celebrate International Astronomy Day. Learn about space equipment from former astronaut Dr. Dave Williams, pick up stargazing basics at a planetarium show, observe the celestial objects through a telescope and make comets right here on Earth.

Special guest Dr. Dave takes us on a tour of the incredible equipment that allows humans to travel, live and work in space. Hear about the different kinds of machines – right down to the nuts and bolts – that are essential to space travel from someone who's been there. Mighty Mission Machines: From Rovers to Rockets, the third book in the Dr. Dave Astronaut series, is available for purchase and signing onsite.
