U of L Professor To Receive Royal Astronomical Society Award

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - A big honour for Dr. David Naylor at the University of Lethbridge and his team on the Herschel-SPIRE Consortium.

They will receive a Royal Astronomical Society award for outstanding contribution to astronomy during a meeting in England this June.

The award is for outstanding success of the SPIRE instrument, which observed the universe at far infrared wavelengths, a few hundred times longer than the wavelengths of visible light. The international team was responsible for the design, construction and delivery of the instrument for the European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory.

The Herschel satellite was launched in 2009 and operated very successfully for four years. Naylor says "having spent well over a decade working on the SPIRE instrument it felt like a member of our family when it was launched, and it's fair to say that it exceeded all expectations. Some would argue that it is one of the most successful space astronomy projects of all time."

Naylor is a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Lethbridge.
