    While the lecture was quite technical in nature, Dr. Longair made if very accessible through his enthusiasm and humour. He's a "rock star" in cosmology and it was fantastic to hear such a respected and knowledgable scientist give a history - and his own views - on what makes up the universe. Really excellent!

    Excellent ! Outstanding presentation. Dr. Longair was an excellent dynamic and very enthusiastic gentleman. He even evoked excellent audience participation.
    Lots of good data and very engaging.
    This is why joining the RASC is excellent value.
    Keep up the good work folks.
