Exploring the Cosmos w/ Canadian Space Engineer Glen Campbell

We will be spending the evening discussing issues in our galaxy and beyond with retired Canadian Space Engineer. Glen Campbell. 

CANADA’S REALLY COOL SPACE PROGRAM

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield achieved rock star status during his stay on the International Space Station.  However Canada’s space program is much more than astronauts and the robot Canada Arms on the Space Shuttle and the Space Station.

Canada was the first country in the world to have a domestic satellite communication system.  Other achievements include the RADARSAT earth observation satellites, our own space telescope, instruments in space that monitor pollution in the atmosphere, instruments on Mars, and many other scientific studies in space.

GLEN CAMPBELL

Glen spent 20 years at a Project Manager with the Canadian Space Agency.

He was responsible for space science projects that flew on the Space Shuttle, satellites, rockets, and high-altitude balloons.  He has also flown extensively on NASA’s KC-135 zero-gravity aircraft, “the Vomit Comet.”

One of his projects went to Mars on a Japanese satellite, and another was Canada’s space telescope.  One of his projects, a high-altitude scientific balloon, was shot at by both Canadian and Russian aircraft.

He graduated in engineering physics at the University of British Columbia, and did graduate work in aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan and the University of Washington.

COST; This will be a potluck and all participants should bring a main dish, veggie dish or salad. They may also choose to give a $15 donation in lieu of the dish to help us with our basic costs. OIC will provide all utensils and drinks. 


PLEASE NO NUTS of any kind as there are nut allergies.

All newcomers to Canada are always our speciaL guests and the prupose behind these dinner parties. Whoever you are...Please join us! :)

    Folks I think tonight will be a nice evening. Volunteers are greatly appreciated and should try to show by no later than 445 if possible. It is always very casual in the first 20minutes as we set up. Please bear in mind that we are relying on folks to bring food as the potluck is always great, Veggie and nonpork dishes are always encouraged. See you in a bit! :)

    I am a member of this group, but this will be my first event. Can I bring a guest or must she become a member first? What is the address of the pot luck?

    • Tony Y.

      Jenny Noone has to be a member to come to events. Please bring whoever you wish but all are asked to bring a dish or contribute. Hope this helps.

    Please note that the date has been changed to Thursday 1 Dec as this was the date that worked out well for our speaker. Glen has been working with the Canadian space program for many years and is a very honorable individual on many fronts. Please note that most OIC events have a price of a dish or$15. This is no different, though newcomers to Canada who are not presently working are given free entrance. The food and connections regardless of the event are always worth the time. Please pass the word as I am very sure you will find his insights on the latest in space exploration a worthy evening. There will be many more diverse events from OIC once again.

    The date is fine for me in the first place. Also, I am very previously informed about the major role Canada has played in its "Space" program!
    What I am meaning, Tony, is if you are planning a series of events with high profile speakers, it is my opinion to do it in a facility where there is a lot of room for people to attend and have a pot luck if this is in your plans. I think there are many people who will attend and as a suggestion; pay $20 even if it is a "Pot Luck!" This is just a suggestion! However, this is your event and your choice! I am really looking forward in coming to your events!
    As a reminder:
    MacDonald Laurier Institute charges $20 for each discussion with a reception afterwards at the War Museum However, Canada 20/20 is free at the Chateau Laurier but the Parking is up to $22.

    Susan I have been in Ukraine and if I understand you this is not the best date as something else is going on at the same time? Perhaps I will try to schedule this another date with the speaker as the date does not seem to be working. Glen is very capable and interesting. :)

    This sounds very interesting! However, I think if this is being held at Carleton in connection with the International Relations and Public Affairs Dept. or Algonquin College, there will be a very large turnout even upon doing event registration and charging for it. This sounds like an event that needs to be broadcast. As a reminder, if not enough people show up for an important panel, this can be very embarrassing for not only the organizer but for the speakers, too! What are your thoughts, Tony?

    September 11

  • Tony Y.

    Canada has played a major role in the space program and I think you will see that our speakers will be very competent and informative on many issues.
