Dramatic Space lecture
Andrew Lound will give a Dramatic Lecture entitled Britannia Sky, sponsored by the Planetary Society.
Contrary to popular belief, Britain has played a vital role in spaceflight history. Scientists, engineers, industry, academia and learned societies have all led the way in their respective fields. The withered hand of successive governments has hampered an independent or more dynamic British space programme. In this remarkable presentation, the history of Britain in space is examined in context, with due credit being paid to those who have tried to push Britain skyward. Accompanied by historic images, movie clips and music, this will be a presentation to make one proud to be British and to wonder what it might actually be like when we sit under a Britannia sky.
If the weather is fine, members of the Swansea Astronomical Society will be demonstrating solar telescopes and an an astronomical exhibition will be given.
