Our Purpose, Membership and Waiting List

Cosmology is the science of the origin and development of the universe. When this doesn't give us enough to discuss we will venture into other associated realms of study including astronomy, particle physics and the philosophy of science.

Our meetings are normally structured around a presentation on a cosmology-related topic by one of our members, a tea break and finally watching a video lecture, from a series on a topic of interest, by a professional cosmologist or physicist. Currently we are studying The Theory of Everything (the quest to explain all reality) by Professor Don Lincoln. We encourage all members to contribute and find that we learn most by researching topics for presentation.

We meet at 11.00am on the 2nd Monday of each month at the Little Theatre on the Portway in Wells. We currently have 13 members and vacancies for five more. Anybody interested in joining us should contact me using the pigeon icon at top right on this page.
