The next Family Open Dome event is this Thursday the 11th July and will be an evening of myth busting and making.
Starting at 6pm the family session includes making a Space Shuttle glider that you can take home and fly. There will also be a fact or fiction sheet to fill in, the answers to which will be revealed during the talk starting at 7pm.
Mr M. Perkins will present a talk on the facts and fiction of space answering such questions as “Did NASA really invent a pen to write in space?” and “Are sailboats the future of space travel?”.
Activities start in LR2G at 6pm and refreshments will be available from 6.30pm in time for the start of the talk in the usual location of IT14G. All are welcome, under 16’s should be accompanied by an adult please. A suggested donation of £2 is appreciated towards costs.
If weather permits there may be opportunity for some solar observing prior to the main talk at 7pm and observatory tours will take place after the talk for anybody interested in seeing our observatory in detail.
