Jun. 26, 2018 | The Search for Life on Other Planets
Paul Delaney (Senior Lecturer, Department of Physics and Astronomy)
Since 1995 thousands of planets have been detected orbiting other stars. Many of these worlds could possibly contain liquid water and even life. Professor Paul Delaney describes our current understanding of exoplanets, the ongoing search for them and the implications for the search for life.
This unique partnership is part of York University’s goals for community engagement and reputation-building, with a unique collaboration that invites alumni, students and their families, and the public to engage in meaningful talks and discussions.
Mark your calendars! Join us on Tuesday, July 10 for York U’s Young Alumni Paint Nite – an evening of after-work mingling, appetizers and painting for a good cause, in the heart of downtown Toronto.
How it Works: Hosted by a York U alumni art instructor, Paint Nite offers attendees a unique experience of step-by-step, guided painting in fun and local eatery.
Cost: $50 each or $75 for two (includes all painting materials, donation supporting the Alumni Golden GRADitude Award and appetizers).
