An overview of the development of the Universe up to the current time - John Currigan

The talk is an overview of the last 13.8 billion years, covering light, cosmic microwave background, formation of stars, galaxies, solar system, earth and moon, earths atmosphere and the elements. It also touches on the chemistry of life and extinction events.

The Vectis Astronomical Society meets on the 4th Friday of every month, except for December. This event is open for non-members to attend. The speakers come from all over the country and give a presentation for around 45 mins. We then stop for a break with tea and biscuits, which gives an opportunity to mingle and chat. The second half of the evening regular member, Peter Burgess, will give a short 20min ‘what’s in the sky this month’ presentation.

We have a suggested donation of £2.50 for Non Members of Vas
