Marie-Michèle Limoges is an astronomy enthusiast: she devoted her research for her master’s degree and PhD to stellar astrophysics. She specializes in observing white dwarf stars, and she has been granted the privilege of using large research telescopes such as the telescope at the Mont-Mégantic Observatory, the telescope at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory, the telescopes at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory, and the giant Gemini North and Gemini South telescopes. Her passion for science is taking on its full meaning through communication. She is now dedicating her efforts to creating scientific content, training the Cosmodôme’s counsellors, holding talks for the general public, and media representation in order to kindle the spark that will arouse scientific curiosity.
