Further Information for the Life, the Universe and Everything Group

We are a 'popular science' group exploring science, technology, medicine and the environment. We have presentations and discussions, make occasional visits and promote external open days and lectures in the region. This Autumn-Winter 2018 term our topics range from Neanderthals to Artificial Intelligence well as members' own interests. We are also pleased to welcome Bob Fosbury, formerly Head of the ESA Hubble Space Telescope Facility at the European Southern Observatory, as our external speaker.
