We have arranged a visit to the Science Museum to see the temporary exhibition, The Sun: Living With Our Star.
Curator, Dr Alison Boyle, has kindly agreed to meet us at the gallery and talk us through the exhibits. This is a ticketed exhibition and the entry cost for Flamsteed members is £10 per person (usually £15 incl. donation). Payment must be made for our visit in advance and will be taken from members who are booked to attend this visit in late December.
The Sun is a constant of human existence, but the way we see it has changed profoundly over the centuries. Early cultures had an intimate relationship with the Sun, using it to organise their days, chart their travels and often worshipping it as a deity of fire, life and rebirth. Modern technologies may have made the Sun appear less relevant to our lives, but it remains fundamental to our survival and continues to influence human activity in new and unexpected ways.
The Sun: Living With Our Star charts our ever-changing relationship with the Sun. Bringing together a unique collection of scientific instruments, technological innovations and beautiful artefacts from a wide range of cultures and periods, the exhibition brings the Sun to life.
Further details about the exhibition can be found on the Science Museum website.
Places are limited and only open to Flamsteed members.
