Missions to Near Earth Asteroids // Sky in April
2 April 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm BST
Talk by Dr John Davies
John will review and present some results from the two recent sample return missions to near Earth asteroids. The Japanese Hayabusa-2 capsule has already returned to Earth and the US Osiris-REX mission has completed its touch and go sample grab on asteroid Bennu. What have we already learned and what is yet to come?
We will also have a presentation of what’s in the night sky in April.
Members will join us via Zoom and visitors are welcome live on our YouTube channel.
