New adventures await for Mark Rigby, Brisbane’s Starman

Mark Rigby doing what he does best as he commands the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium.

Congratulations to our friend and colleague, Mark Rigby, as he retires from the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium after 36 years.

Mark is a long-standing members of APS and his passion for our Society and for astronomy and space exploration are legendary. He has had a stellar career as detailed in this great article from ABC News.

We hope Mark enjoys spending his retirement travelling, meeting people and having all the space adventures that he loves (once Covid allows!) and making sure he catches us up at each APS conference.
