Shadows in Space and the Stories They Tell
17 November @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
Talk by Mary McIntyre
Our last speaker had to cancel so we are fortunate that Mary is able to step in at short notice.
By studying shadows on Earth to shadows on the surface of the Moon we can learn a lot but it doesn’t stop there; cameras on probes in orbit around other planets and their moons give us the opportunity to study the shadows there too and they have taught us so much.
