CPSX Research Forum

Welcome to the homepage of the Centre for Planetary Science and Exploration (CPSX) at Western University, the focus for planetary science and exploration research in Canada. Our mantra is excellence in research, education, and outreach. The Centre hosts Canada’s only graduate program in planetary science and has a vibrant public education and outreach program. We provide national leadership by running short courses, workshops, and field trips and by leading Canada’s membership in the NASA Lunar Science Institute and the NASA Astrobiology Institute.

The CPSX hosts the CPSX Research Forum every Friday during the academic year, you can learn more about it and browse past and future talks here.
