Bringing a Piece of Space Down to Earth, Dr John Davies


Sadly we have had to cancel this meeting due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, for the health and wellbeing of all our members it is the best thing to do. We very much hope to be able to have Dr John Davies come and talk to us again in the near future!

Stay safe and healthy everyone, wherever you are.


Dr. John Davies: ROE
Bringing a Piece of Space Down to Earth
Near Earth Objects have been of especial interest since the realisation in the 1980's that an asteroid impact probably wiped out the dinosaurs. At this very moment two spacecraft, one Japanese and one American, are in orbit around different asteroids and each hopes to return a sample to the Earth in the next few years. John will explain what an asteroid is, where they come from, how the sample missions are progressing and briefly mention a future misson which will be the first attempt to deflect an asteroid as a dry run for the day humanity may need to do this for real.

Followed by the usual tea/coffee/biscuits/chat break.
Second half varies at each monthly meeting and includes at least one of: Space News; a night sky tour, outside weather permitting or in the hall using Stellarium; club news and/or a short informative slot by a committee or club member.
Your first meeting is free! Membership is currently £24 per year.
