There will be no meeting in August

On Tuesday 17th September Ron Hulman will be giving a talk entitled Relativity for the layman
When Einstein asked himself how the universe would look if he could ride on a beam of light, suddenly all previous notions of space, time, matter, energy and gravity were upended. Einstein’s relativity revealed that behind the curtain of our perceived reality, the universe’s actual workings defy intuition. In this talk relativity is explained fully but simply, allowing everyone a peak behind the curtain of reality.
It will be held at 2 Lamorna Close, Radlett WD7 7DR.
The starting time will be 14:30 (2.30pm).

On Tuesday 15th October Dr Elliott Finer will be giving a talk entitled Managing the risks from chemicals – where science meets emotion
We depend on synthetic chemicals, so we have to manage the risks they pose to human health and the environment. Evidence of actual harm from low levels of industrial chemicals is scarce, and very low concentrations may not be harmful; but people instinctively dislike the thought that man-made substances are sullying the environment, even though there is no difference in principle between synthetic and naturally-occurring chemicals. The EU chemicals regime is probably a price worth paying to assess and manage the risks from synthetic chemicals.
It will be held at 3 Folly Close, Radlett, WD7 8PY.
Starting time will be 14:30 (2.30pm)
