Multimessenger Astronomy A talk by Dr Stephen Webb
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri May 10, 2019
Time: 19.30 for 19.45
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Almost everything we know about the universe came from observing electromagnetic radiation. But information from astrophysical events can reach us via three other types of messenger: • charged cosmic rays, • neutrinos, • and gravitational waves. By combining signals from the four different messengers we can gain new insights. This talk looks at how multimessenger astronomy recently shed light on a decades-old puzzle, and it looks forward to what we might learn next.

Deep Space Imaging with the Crendon Observatory
Milton Keynes Astronomical Society
Rectory Cottages, Church Green Road, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, MK3 6BJ
Fri May 17, 2019
Time: 8 PM
Talk by Gordon Rogers. The talk describes the imaging of Deep Space from the observatory and is regularly updated with recent astronomical discoveries. Gordon recount the achievements of several amazingly gifted British amateurs where this in one area of science in which the sheer enthusiast gives great aid to the professional. Discoveries by these amateurs command the deployment of major observatories such as Hubble. Many things in astronomy go wrong and he recite some of them!
June
Ten Ways the Universe Tries to Kill You A talk by Stephen Tonkin FRAS
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Jun 14, 2019
Time: 19.30 for 19.45
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
From gamma-ray bursts to asteroid impacts, an overview of cataclysmic events. This light-hearted but scientifically robust approach incorporates a lot of fundamental cosmological processes, from stellar evolution to galactic interaction. It is appropriate for both beginning and intermediate amateur astronomers.

Asteroids - A Waste of Space? A talk by Professor Malcolm Coe
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Jul 12, 2019
Time: 19.30 for 19.45
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Asteroids are becoming increasingly of great interest to us. Over many years we have become aware of the great potential threat they represent to the Earth, with the scars of their impacts littering our planet. But now we are beginning also to look at them in a more positive light as we start to think about asteroids as a future resource for both our planet and space travel. This talk will focus on the latter aspect, starting off with a review of the nature of these objects. Where do we find them, what are they made of and then, what do we want to get from them? It will finish with a few thoughts on the looming legal battles as to who exactly has the right to mine these objects - all of us, or just those who get there first?  The Lecturer: Malcolm Coe is a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Southampton. His research normally focuses on the life cycles of stars in different types of galaxies, a topic on which he has published over 200 papers. But in 2017 he was honoured by having an asteroid the size of the Isle of Wight named after himself - 9015 Coe. This had led to a new international collaboration with astronomers in the USA to start thinking seriously about the approaches one could use to identify commercially interesting asteroids.
