I’ll be speaking in Sydney on Monday 16th January at the Macarthur Astronomy Forum. It’s free and open to everyone. The details:
The Universe for Beginners
Abstract: The night sky might seem to be a random collection of odd objects: stars, planets, asteroids, brown dwarfs, white dwarfs, supernovae remnants, pulsars, galaxies.
Are they just a menagerie, or can we make sense of them? I’ll show how a single question links the night sky’s occupants into a coherent scheme.
Date: 16th January, 2017
