AGM + ‘SETI and the Rare Earth Hypothesis’ @ Zoom Video Conference
Jul 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

AGM + ‘SETI and the Rare Earth Hypothesis’

The society’s annual general meeting followed by a talk by Steve Hurley.

Steve will give an overview of the work which has been done on SETI (what sort of signals are they looking for); current and future searches plus an outline of the Rare Earth Hypothesis. (This is the hypothesis that Earth-like planets containing complex life forms are rare in the Universe and that only a series of highly improbable events led to the evolution of intelligent life on Earth).

For further information please visit Steve’s blog here. There is also a kindle e-book by Steve which can be purchased here.





‘Sky Fire’ @ Cavendish Road Primary School
Apr 12 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

‘Sky Fire’

A talk by Andrew Greenwood. Picture yourself within a tantalising location on Earth … A place you perhaps may only visit once in your lifetime, then add a celestial event to the occasion, which you may or may not be lucky enough to see. This is a story about adventures such as these.
