Hi guys, just reminding you about a great trip we’ve got coming up that promises to be extremely interesting and a lot of fun! This Saturday (26th Jan) Astrosoc will be making a trip to the Greenwich Observatory and Planetarium.
The Royal Observatory has played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and is best known as the location of the prime meridian. It is situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. For those of you who haven’t visited a Planetarium, think of it as a tour bus of the Universe taking you on amazing journeys to explore and experience the wonders of the night sky. Combining real images from spacecraft and telescopes with advanced CGI, all projected onto a fully immersive dome, the Planetarium can fly you into the heart of the Sun, transport you to distant galaxies, show you the birth of a star or land you on Mars.’
Astrosoc will subsidise the entry to the planetarium but travel will cost around £5 there and back (cheaper with railcard linked oysters).
Meeting at the union at 11.30 on Saturday!
