Time:4th Tuesday of the month at 2:30pm

New members are welcome. If you would like to know more about our solar system and the wider universe, are interested in the technology of spaceflight, or are intrigued by the occasional space stories that appear in the news, come along to one of our meetings and see whether you would like to join us. Don't be afraid of appearing ignorant. In the face of such a huge and rapidly evolving subject we all feel ignorant, but we're there to learn.

Next meeting: meetings are suspended uring the current emergency.

About the Gaia space telescope which is well on the way to fulfilling its task of measurimg the position, distance, velocity, brightness and colour of over a billion stars. The huge database of information it produces is already being mined by astronomers to make new discoveries, and will continue to be a source of information for further research for many years to come.
