Pens and pencils at the ready again on Tuesday 13th December, at 7pm, the evening of our Quiz. Yours truly and Mark will be joint quizmasters taking 20 questions each. I am going for the easier ones! At Georgetown Community Centre as usual.
In February and March we have 2 great speakers lined up.
In February, Professor Victoria Martin, of Edinburgh University who was interviewed on Radio 4’s morning news programme on The Large Hadron Collider, now this is up and running again. This may be an in person visit by Victoria, or held via Zoom.
In March we are very fortunate to have booked as our speaker who is coming to Dumfries one of the most famous names in 20th century Astronomy, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, who made the discovery of pulsars, dense rapidly rotating collapsed stars which indicated that the signals were not coming from Little Green Men after all! Controversially, Dame Jocelyn was not awarded the Nobel Prize, which many think was due to her.
We are presently sorting out the venue for Jocelyn’s talk but this will be on Thursday 16th March at 7pm. Note – NOT ON THE TUESDAY!
