Grenfell to open observatory next year

August 30, 2010

In 2011, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College will open its new observatory, which will feature the largest astronomical telescope. The Grenfell telescope will be incorporated into 3 physics courses already offered at the Corner Brook campus of Memorial University. The campus may offer a physics degree with a focus on astronomy in the future. With the observatory, Grenfell will be in a position to not only do research on campus, but also collaborate with other universities and astronomers. Western Star
