Dr. Howie Firth: SIGMA
The Path to the Planets, the Road to the Stars
It’s now almost 50 years since the last human footprint on the Moon. Maybe sometime in the next decade we will return – but what about Mars and beyond? Will we ever explore much of our own Solar System, let alone reach the nearest star? Howie Firth says that the dream of exploration is so deeply built in to us that we have to try – and there is hope!
Followed by a short tea/coffee/biscuits break.
Second half varies at each monthly meeting and includes at least one of: Space News; a night sky tour using Stellarium; club news and/or a short informative slot by a committee or club member.
