Loading Events

Talk by Professor Philip Best, FRSE, Professor of Extragalactic Astrophysics, Royal Observatory, Edinburgh (ROE)

This is also our AGM. After the talk and what’s in the sky this month, non-members should leave so that we can carry out the business of the Society. Thank you

“The Low-Frequency Array, LOFAR, is one of the first of a new generation of radio telescopes, taking radio astronomy into a complete new regime. I will give an overview of this pan-European facility, and outline the current status of the radio sky surveys that LOFAR is carrying out, highlighting the challenges, the progress made to overcome these, and the early science highlights.”

Visitors are welcome at our meetings, but because of the popularity of our talks, visitors must register for a free ticket as visitor spaces are limited. Visitors can also leave after the main talk or are welcome to stay on for the rest of the meeting. Tickets will go live 2 weeks before the event.
