Canton and Dad went to another star talk last night at JMU. Needless to say he had a great time and we are so thankful to the JMU faculty for taking such an interest in him!
About 200 people came to hear about the stellar undead and all the very cool things we are learning as a result! Canton wasn’t afraid to speak up in front of everyone, and even correct the speaker when he forgot Lithium on the Periodic Table! OMG, what is this kid going to do in K next year?
He asked the speaker a question about VY Canis Majoris while the college students surrounding us looked the big star up on their phones to see what he was talking about! 🙂 Afterwards, Dr. Virani spoke with Canton for a while and some of his students tried to stump Canton, giving him all kinds of questions, ranging from space to elements, which he knocked out of the park of course!
The faculty invited him up on stage to take a picture with Dr. Ransom and the physics department!
Thank you to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO)’s Dr. Scott Ransom and JMU’s Dr. Virani for a great presentation!
