Big Bang - The First Three Minutes

by Bob Leon

6th September 2018

At the September meeting the Vice Chairman Bob Leon gave a very interesting illustrated talk entitled “Big Bang – the First Three Minutes”. He took the audience through first principles on the theory of how the Universe came into being and evolved dramatically in its first three minutes of existence, agreeing with current measurements taken.

The meeting concluded with an outline of highlight objects to observe in the night sky for September.

At the next meeting, following a brief AGM, the Secretary David Pugh will give the final part of his talk “The Brightest Stars Part 2” including a brief summary of Part 1. This will be on Thursday October 4th and will be held at 7.30pm at the United Reform Church, Carnarvon Road, CO156PH. Visitors welcome £2.
