*Title*: Ad Astra Per Aspera: Canadian Astronomy and NRC’s Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics
*Synopsis*: Starting with an overview of some of the major science objectives of 21st century astronomy, I will provide a sense of the diverse activities underway to meet those objectives in the white buildings on Observatory Hill that everyone sees from afar (but hasn’t visited since elementary school days). The hope is that you will leave with a sense of pride inspired to look up through our light-polluted skies with renewed awe.
