Next meeting 8:00pm on Friday 29 April 2016: 'Astronauts then and now' a talk by Dr Ann Bonnell

All our meetings are open to the public and visitors are always welcome.

We used to think of Astronauts as riding a rocket to complete a few Earth orbits and coming back down to Earth. Nowadays, the missions are more like Space dwelling with long duration in orbit but what's the plan? Our guest speaker will elaborate this coming Friday April 29
