Good Times, historical posters, celebrate Yuri’s Night at Minicon 52 one of the oldest science fiction conventions with Brother Guy Consolmagno – Science Guest of Honor.  Hosted by Minnesota Space Frontier Society and Mars CON (20).

 

Brother Guy Consolmagno – Science Guest of Honor
Brother Guy was named by Pope Francis to be the Director of the Vatican Observatory in September 2015, a post with the popular title of “The Pope’s Astronomer”. He joined the Brotherhood in 1991 and was assigned to the Vatican Observatory and there he has happily stayed.
Of course, he has strayed temporarily from time to time for adventures in Antarctica and other varied experiences (who wouldn’t?), tirelessly pursuing his exploration of the commonalities between faith and science. He has appeared at a wide variety of venues; from science fiction conventions, to scientific symposiums, NPR shows and the Colbert Report, all to have informed and informative discussions about his reverence for science and faith.
