There she blows! Volcanoes and their effects; by Mike Maunder FRAS
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield PO8 0RB
Fri Mar 10, 2017
Time: 7.45pm
Price: £3 on the door for non members
You may wonder what volcanoes have to do with astronomy. Mike Maunder will investigate why they are important; whether they drive climate change, and why it may not be the best idea to build large telescopes in volcanically active regions. This is sure to be an interesting talk from an astronomer who is also a forensic chemist.
Transient events in the Universe: a talk by Professor Jocelyn Bell Burnell
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Cclanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Apr 21, 2017
Time: 19.30
Price: £3 at the door for non-members
Hampshire Astronomical Group is delighted to welcome Professor Jocelyn Bell Burnellfor our April public lecture. Often when we view the Universe in a new way, new and unexpected phenomena are discovered. Recent developments in detectors (for example CCDs) and in computers are now allowing astronomers to search systematically for short duration phenomena – flares, bursts and other kinds of changes in the brightness of stars and galaxies. Some such phenomena were already known (supernovae, for example), and some have been accidentally discovered (gamma ray bursts, for example). There has also recently been more systematic searching for moving objects, such as asteroids that might impact the earth. We are now entering a new phase with more and bigger telescopes, larger data flows, and observations with new, lower frequency, radio telescopes. This talk will describe this burgeoning field and speculate on what might be found.
