What a very entertaining and involving talk we had from Dr Alastair Bruce of the ROE! He brought along his Lego Apollo 11 model and took us through the whole journey with a little orbital mechanics thrown in too.
Our honorary president, Professor Andrew Lawrence gave a very engaging talk on Wandering Astronomers: the past, present, and future of mountaintop astronomy, celebrating the work of Charles Piazzi Smyth.
Along with our AGM, Professor Philip Best of the ROE gave a really interesting talk about Deep Radio Sky Surveys with the LOFAR array. Who knew radio telescopes might be supplied flat-packed by a well-know Swedish furniture company.
