Autumn 2010 Programme

Following on from an excellent series of talks in the spring, the club has some equally high calibre talks lined up this autumn, hopefully leading up to a clear observing evening at the beginning of December. You can check the details of the next meeting on the Meetings page, and of course we’ll continue to post reminders closer to the date on the Club News RSS feed, together with a write up of each meeting after the event. Here’s what you’ve got to look forward to;

Wednesday 1st September
Dr Andy Martin from the Faculty of Modern & Medieval Languages at the University of Cambridge will present “Beware Invisible Cows”. He will talk about the Keck lab in Hawaii, LIGO (the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory in Washington State) and invisible cows. All will be revealed in September!!

Wednesday 6th October
Nobel Laureate Professor Anthony Hewish of Cambridge University returns to Papworth to present “Radio-astronomy, inflation and the design of the Universe”.

Wednesday 3rd November
Leonard Honey will talk about sundials, ancient and modern.

Wednesday 1st December
This will be a night sky meeting, with (weather permitting) an observing session. It will be held at the Vinter Room as usual and, in the event of inclement weather, there will be an alternative presentation indoors.
