MAR 22: SPEAKER NIGHT: Professor Mark Rector – OH CANADA! Our Home and Inventive Land!

Everything looks good, the meeting is a go!

The leg of the Lunar Module was designed and built in Canada!

Did you know Canadians invented and built everything from the legs on the NASA lunar lander (the lander itself was designed by a Canadian!) to the most advanced robot in this world (or out of it!)? The Canadarm 2 that built the entire International Space Station! We have invented or designed everything from the most advanced supersonic jet fighter of the 20th century, the Avro Arrow built right here in Mississauga, to the first geo-synchronous communications satellite to be launched into space.

The meeting will be held from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. at The University of Toronto, Mississauga Campus, in lecture hall SE2074 in the William Davis Building.

Park in parking deck P4 or P8, across from the Recreation and Wellness (Fitness) Centre south of the Davis Building. The parking rate is $2 per hour or $6 maximum. Consider paying the maximum, which will allow you to park all night. If not, you should return to your vehicle before your time expires to avoid being ticketed.

Enter the Davis Building through the Fitness centre, walk up the stairs until you reach the main corridor then turn right. If you need an elevator, follow the corridor to the right of the stairs, then go up to the main floor. Look for the Mississauga Centre sign in front of the lecture room.
