Free Swinburne Lecture

Abstract: When we look up into the night sky, almost all the light we see comes from stars: single stars, stellar clusters, and even giant ensembles of stars that make up galaxies. How and where do stars form? How and why do they evolve? And what is the fate of stars? In this talk we will go on a journey through the life of star, from their birth to death, and learn about the important role that stellar evolution plays in both galaxies and life.

      That would be cool! Why not just choose one topic and think about how best to convey it to us. I know I find Einstein's theories baffling - I was never educated in physics beyond a Newtonian viewpoint really.

      I could always do something on General and Special Relativity.

    I'm on their mailing list and will be attending, but with my teenage son, so might not catch up with the wider group. Will look out to say hi.

      Don't worry Craig, most of the people from this meetup group don't end up seeing the wider group. Hope you and your son enjoy the evening next week :)

    What is the status for Rob McNaught ??? Does he have his funding? I heard that the VLARRAY telescopes when finished will be searching for NEO's is this true?
