THE SUMMER LECTURE IS SOLD OUT

Learn about WA’s first steps into space!!!

This year, we’re thrilled to have the Director of the Space Science and Technology Centre (SSTC) at Curtin University, Dr Phil Bland presenting our annual Summer Lecture.

Join us on our back lawn as Dr Bland presents his talk on WA’s first satellite Binar-1 (Noongar word for fireball). He will bring to light the Binar Space Program which is developing WA’s spacecraft engineering capability so we can take our place amongst space-faring nations. Dr Bland will also explain how the program will help NASA’s Artemis missions to the Moon.

Come early and have dinner as there will be a coffee van, and the Lesmurdie Club will be selling food at the Observatory on the night. You’re more than welcome to bring your own picnic dinner as well.

Please Note: The summer lecture will still go ahead, rain, hail or alien invasion. If on the day there is a good chance of rain then the summer lecture will be moved to Lesmurdie High School (View Map) and you’ll be informed via email and a phone call.
