Robert Smith

“In 7,590 million years, the Sun will have evolved to become a red giant star, whose radius will be comparable to the current radius of the Earth's orbit around the Sun: I shall discuss what that will do to our Earth. The Earth will actually be too hot for habitation much sooner than that - but still some 1,000 million years into the future from purely astronomical considerations. We shall also look at some of the problems that humanity needs to overcome to survive for even 1,000 centuries.”

7:30 for 8pm start.

Meetings are FREE (although a contribution to expenses is appreciated)

As a reminder, the event starts at 8pm but if you want a seat, I recommend arriving for 7:30pm.


Change of Programme. Newton is cancelled, and Fate of the Earth is back on...

From Jim: "I am afraid that Rob Iliffe, our scheduled speaker for tomorrow (Turesday 20th) has had to cancel for family reasons. Fortunately, Robert Smith, our scheduled speaker for last month, who was unable to make it at the time, *is* now available and will step in to replace Rob."
