A long acquaintance with The Planetary Society

I met Louis Friedman, Executive Director of the Planetary Society, in Vancouver in 1982 where he introduced me to the work of the Society. We later corresponded on ways to promote the Society in Australia.

I eventually went on to chair the Australian Astronomy and Space Exploration liaison group and to promote astronomy and space science to the public in many ways. As part of my university career I founded and managed a science centre and planetarium. The Vancouver conference and my encounter with The Planetary Society was one of the turning points in my career.
