With astrophysicist Olivier Hernandez, astronomy instrument builder and Director of the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan


Olivier was just 12 when he first became excited about astronomy. He soon fashioned his own telescope for stargazing, and that was only the beginning! Over the course of his career he has designed and built a range of instruments with names like Idéfix, FANTOMM, GHaFas, SPIrou and NIRPS. Come hear about his creative career as an astrophysicist, from the Mont Mégantic Observatory to iREx (exoplanet research institute) to heading the Planétarium. Here’s your unique chance to chat and tinker with this enthusiastic science communicator. 

In French only.
