The Vatican Observatory's Br. Guy Consolmagno wins Carl Sagan Medal

(Vatican Radio) This year’s Carl Sagan Medal, presenter by the American Astronomical Society (AAS), has been awarded to Brother Guy Consolmagno, SJ, of the Vatican Observatory.

The Division for Planetary Sciences of the AAS, upon announcing the award, said Consolmagno “occupies a unique position within our profession as a credible spokesperson for scientific honesty within the context of religious belief.”

The AAS made a special note of his book “Turn Left at Orion,” which “has had an enormous impact on the amateur astronomy community, engendering public support for astronomy.”

:thumbsup:

It’s fitting that he won the Carl Sagan medal,since he believes and promotes naturalistic theories of the origins of things.

LOVE him!! Congratulations Brother Guy! :dancing:
