National Maritime Museum, SE10 9NF
Greenwich, London SE10 9NF United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Dr Andrew Pontzen Our Universe is, at the very least, 100 billion light years across. But where does this number come from? How can we measure the distance to even the nearest star when we've never visited? And, at a time when cosmologists reckon our Universe may be just one of many in a giant multiverse, will we ever truly grasp the magnitude of what's out there? Join us on a voyage into the farthest reaches of space and time.…

Mullard Radio Telescope

Radio Astronomy was born in 1933 with Karl Jansky's realisation that the mysterious noise he was detecting came from the direction of the centre of the Milky Way. The early development of the science was both hindered and helped by the events surrounding WW2, but the end of the war saw the UK and Australia seizing the initiative, rather than the USA. The subsequent story includes both the unchanging rivalry in scientific endeavour and the evolving role of women in…

The Volatile Universe by Professor Tim O’Brien

April 9 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
National Maritime Museum, SE10 9NF
Greenwich, London SE10 9NF United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Professor Tim O'Brien To the casual observer, the heavens may seem rather unchanging: the steady procession of the constellations as the Earth spins on its path around the Sun, punctuated by the wandering of the planets, the regular cycle of the Moon and the occasional spectacular appearance of a comet. To the more discerning observer though, the sky is far from steady. Indeed with the advantage of modern technology, the Universe is remarkably volatile. In this talk, Tim will discuss…

William & Caroline Herschel

Flamsteed History of Astronomy Group Meeting. The following talk will be delivered by Mona Evans.  In 1781, a German-born musician observing with a home-made telescope from his back garden in Bath, England, discovered a new planet, the first to be found since ancient times. We now call it Uranus. This unexpected discovery, which doubled the size of the known Solar System, propelled William Herschel to international celebrity.  But that was only the start. Sponsored by the king of England, he and his sister Caroline…
