About Your Presenter

Fr. James F. Salmon, S.J., is Affiliate Associate Professor of Chemistry and Theology at Loyola University, Maryland. He received an M.A. in philosophy from Boston College and a Ph.D. in chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania, where he worked under the guidance of 2000 Nobel Laureate in chemistry, Alan G. MacDiarmid. He has taught at Loyola, Wheeling Jesuit, Johns Hopkins, and Georgetown Universities. After studying theology at Woodstock College, he was ordained as a priest, and he served as the Vice President and Treasurer of the Maryland Province of the Jesuit Order from 1987 to 1997. Inspired by the writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, he founded the Annual Cosmos and Creation Conference at Loyola University Maryland in 1981 and directed the conference until his retirement in 2010. He is the author and editor of many of books and other publications that have incorporated the thought of Teilhard de Chardin, such as The Legacy of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (Paulist, 2011).

Dr. Guy Consolmagno, S.J., is Director of the Vatican Observatory, a leading astronomer and meteoriticist, and a Jesuit brother. He earned undergraduate and master’s degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in Planetary Science from the University of Arizona. Before entering the Jesuits in 1989, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard and MIT, served in the US Peace Corps, and taught university physics at Lafayette College. He has worked as a Vatican Observatory astronomer since 1993.

Br. Consolmagno’s research explores connections between meteorites, asteroids, and the evolution of small solar system bodies. The author of a monthly science column for The Tablet, he has written more than 200 scientific publications and a number of popular books, including Turn Left at Orion (with Dan Davis), and Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? (with Paul Mueller). He has also hosted science programs for BBC Radio 4, appeared in numerous documentary films, and served as chair of the American Astronomical Society’s Division for Planetary Sciences. In 2000, the small bodies nomenclature committee of the International Astronomical Union named an asteroid, 4597 Consolmagno, in recognition of his work. In...
