How Big is the Universe?evimg=speakers/pfellows.jpg
Saturday 30th May 2020
Start time : 16:00
Speaker : Paul Fellows
Some of the oldest questions in Science are “How far away are the stars?”, “Does space go on forever?” and “Did the Universe have a beginning?” Paul attempts to show how astronomers have tackled these questions and how science reveals some very profound truths about the Universe.
This talk is a little more advanced than most of our talks, but should still be enjoyable by beginner-level viewers
