“Change of Topic” Graham Bryant - Rescuing the Hubble Telescope

Due to this months speaker having an accident and spraining his ankle, there is a change to the advertised talk. Graham Bryant has kindly stepped in to talk about the various difficulties getting the famous Hubble telescope up and running. Many may know of the issues with the calibration of the mirror, but there were many other issues to be solved. Should be very interesting . The talk ‘Can we live on Mars’ shall be rescheduled

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 one of our regular members 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.
