Science, Technology and Engineering

Our last meeting was held on the 15th March, when Clive Kessell returned to give a talk on Metros, trams and light rail systems in the UK. Very illuminating and provoked numerous queries and one or two anecdotes

In APRIL Ray White will explain what went wrong to cause the tragic Leicester helicopter crash. At least that is the plan at the moment.

In MAY John Wells will be looking at LASERS - but not too directly of course!

We are planning to visit the Gatwick Aviation museum (Ray White organising), which apart from a superb collection of retired aircraft has an exhibition showing the historic development of Gatwick Airport.
We are also planning visits to both the Fusion Centre at Culham and the code cracking centre at Bletchley Park.
