Our Open Evening presentation shows how our understanding of the fourth planet of our sun has evolved, especially since the first use of telescopes. The flood of information and data returned from orbiting space craft and landers in recent years has given us a reasonable understanding of the history of Mars so far and of its nature today, but there is plenty of scope for surprises, can we answer the vital question - “has there ever been life on Mars?”

Enceladus has captured the imagination ever since it was found to have a liquid ocean under the surface. From New Scientist and Scientific American to Judge Dredd Megazine and 2000AD, writers of fact and fiction have imagined what might lurk under the ice. Terrifying aliens? Little green fish? Probably not, but there could be an abundance of bacteria and bugs - or nothing at all. Martin Howe will talk about the facts we know so far, the plans for space probe visits, and that an incredible sea far from the Sun might harbour
