Radio Astronomy

Professor Elias BrinksProfessor Elias Brinks from University of Hertfordshire will take us into the world of  radio astronomy.

His current research interests focus on the structure and kinematics of galaxies in the Local Volume. Although he uses instruments covering most of the electromagnetic spectrum, his expertise lies especially in the (sub) millimetre and radio regime to probe the atomic and molecular gas components in galaxies.

As amateur astronomers, what radio astronomy can we do in our back gardens? Come along and find out! 

Anyone is welcome – beginner or expert – and there is no need to pre-book. A small charge applies to help us cover costs (typically £3 for non-members; £2 for members; U16s free). Doors open at 7.30pm with the talk starting at 8.00pm.
