Several of us will be attending Astrofest at Kensington Town Hall at the end of next week. Greg Smye-Rumsby and Richard Dunn are both giving talks on Friday morning (6 February). Greg's is titled: The Universe in three dimensions, whilst Richard's is titled: Spying the stars: The invention and development of the telescope. Richard's new book The telescope: a short history, is published by the National Maritime Museum this March. If you are at Astrofest, do drop in on our stand (stand 20) on the lower floor and say hello.
