NEXT MEETING

Our next meeting, on Wednesday 29th May, is our Members Night with contributions from members of the society. It would be good to have members prepared to contribute to the evening.

Galaxies and dark matter

Yesterday's meeting saw a superb lecture by Dr. Phil James (Liverpool John Moores University) on "Galaxies and Dark Matter". He outlined the case for dark matter and considered the possibilities of what it might be. He also looked at alternative possibilities and their strengths and weaknesses. A very clear and interesting presentation.
