"A Universe of Dwarf Galaxies" a talk by Dr Samantha Penny
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Mar 9, 2018
Time: 7.45pm start
Price: £3 for non members
Dwarf galaxies are the most common galaxies in the Universe, yet they are frequently overlooked due to their small size and low luminosity. Despite their diminutive nature, they are an extremely varied and fascinating galaxy population, spanning a wide range of sizes and structures. They greatly outnumber galaxies like our Milky Way, and are thought to be the initial building blocks of the Universe. In this talk, Dr Penny will present some of the latest cutting-edge research being done to better understand these galaxies, from surprisingly difficult dwarf galaxy searches in our own Galactic neighbourhood, to the discovery of the densest galaxy found to date. Dr Penny is a Senior Research Associate at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth. 
Adventures in the outer Solar System: A talk by Dr Caitriona Jackman
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Apr 13, 2018
Time: 7.30pm
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Dr Jackman will take you on a tour of the outer solar system, highlighting the key discoveries that have been made and the biggest questions for future exploration. Results from missions such as Galileo at Jupiter and Cassini at Saturn will highlight the diversity of planetary dynamics as well as the zoo of moons, some of which indicate that they may have the conditions to harbour life. The final portion of the talk will focus on current and future plans for solar system exploration. One short-term highlight is the NASA mission Juno which has been in orbit around Jupiter since summer 2016
