Astronomy Society of Victoria… August stargazing, membership and beyondAugust 4, 2009
|August Monthly Meeting|
|Date: Wed. 12th August, 8pm
Venue: National Herbarium, Birdwood Ave., Melbourne
Guest Speaker: Dr Bart Pindor (University of Melbourne)
Topic: The Evolution of the Universe – Our Cosmic Past: The history of the Universe is perhaps the oldest and most compelling question in astronomy. Over the past 80 years, astronomers have made a series of remarkable discoveries which have given us an ever more detailed understanding of the evolution of the universe. Our latest discoveries even give us a surprising hint of the future which awaits our distant descendants. Bart Pindor will deliver a fascinating non technical presentation on this subject that will be suitable for all to digest as he answers the ultimate questions of Love, Pain, the Universe and Everything!
All are welcome, there is no cost and supper is provided. Looking forward to seeing you there.
Special Reminder: The ASV Library is now open following the meeting, as well as the usual opening prior to the meeting.
Perry Vlahos, President
