My teenager's idea of a good time...

Attending a college lecture (with his dad) by Br. Guy Consolmagno, S.J.,Ph.D., 
Curator of the Vatican Meteorite Collection, Research Astronomer, and Planetary Scientist at the Vatican Observatory...
"Listen to the Heavens!"
...and getting his autograph.
You can't see it in this picture but he inscribed it "For Z~ a future adventurer".
I wish I could have gone. They both said Br. Guy is an amazing speaker who is incredibly personable and amusing to listen to. A funny scientist... who knew? : ) He's also a fan of homeschooling! Get this, his recommendation for educating excellent future scientists ~ focus on literature, writing and speech! Oh... and he says he is very aware of the lack of good Catholic science programs. His words to Sean, "We're working on it." Hope for the future!


  1. Charlotte! How cool ... I've read (and reviewed) both of these books and was very impressed with not only the knowledge shown but (and more importantly for me) the readability of them! Very cool ...

  2. That is really awesome. I'm going to show this to my teenager when he gets home!

  3. Hi Charlotte :)
    Thanks for sharing these. I just ordered them from the library.

    I wondered if I were the only one having trouble finding a good Catholic science program :/

    Blessings, Lori

  4. Hey Charlotte, have you seen Jim the Science guy? He's part of the CurrClick site. It looks like your big guy is more advanced but my own teenager still enjoys his online classes.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
