Excellent meeting today. Hope you enjoyed it too, if you made it.

Prof Don Kurtz on the latest understanding of stars, from analysing their "sounds", was eye (and ear!) opening.

I shall put up the video in a day or two. Well worth a watch, if you appreciate bang up to date astro discovery.

Kevin

Video recordings of the excellent talk yesterday by Prof. Don Kurtz, are now here online.

Titled "Sounds of the Stars", it's about using star brightness variability, to understand star pulsation, detect extra-solar planets and create music!

Sorry, my description does not do justice. I've watched it 3-4 times now, at the meeting and while editing the video. It's terrific.

For a thought provoker.. try Part 3 at 1m 28s. You heard it first, here!
