Scriven Bolton Astronomy Lecture Wed 10th Nov 2010, Leeds

Post by david entwistle »

The University of Leeds School of Physics and Astronomy invite you to the 2010 Bolton Lecture: "The Cassini-Huygens mission at Saturn and Titan and future outer planetary missions" to be given by Professor Michele K. Dougherty, Imperial College London.

See here for full details.
This is the 11th in a series of annual free public lectures. We aim to bring current developments in Astronomy to a wide audience and to high schools in particular. The lecture series is named after Scriven Bolton (c1888-1929) a local benefactor whose bequest enables the University to provide a state-of-the-art observatory with which undergraduates can learn practical astronomy.

The Speaker

Professor Michele Dougherty began her academic career as an applied mathematician in the University of Natal, South Africa where she obtained her PhD in 1988. There she conducted research on fundamental plasma processes, including those by which cosmic rays drive a wind out of the Milky Way and others occurring in the Sun's corona. Subsequently, she spent time at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg before moving to Imperial College London where she works in the Space and Atmospheric Physics Group in the Blackett Laboratory.

Dear David
Sounds interesting.
I hope to \might (?) go to Leeds "Astromeet" next week (always a good do) but midweek evening meetings at Leeds are a bit too far for me.
Best wishes from Cliff
