Dr. Jim Hesser, long-time RASC member and past Honorary President, has been awarded the National Research Council's 2015 W.G. Schneider Medal for his inspiring decades-long contribution to the pursuit of excellence in Canadian government astronomy, both as a productive researcher, and as the Director of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory for nearly three decades (1986-2014). The award also recognizes Jim’s committed advocacy of astronomy as a integral part of our broader cultural life, both here and abroad.

The Society congratulates Jim on his well-merited award!
