Cassini’s Grand Finale – The Ultimate Wild Ride with Professor Fred Watson

Fred Watson is perhaps Australia’s best-loved science communicator. Professor Watson was the obvious choice to explain how the Cassini space probe will wrap up a twenty-year exploration mission with a spectacular series of dives between the rings of Saturn. An astrophysicist, Fred has a fantastic ability to infect others with his enthusiasm for the Universe. He also shared with Open House his own journey through faith.
