  1. ^^This As stated by someone earlier, it was SPM work that helped achieve the moon landings so i think its only fitting to have something named after him.....even if it is in an ancient language. I'll pay the $5 if you all promise to vote lol
  2. If it passes close enough, ill jump up, grab it and wrestle it to the floor!. No point worrying about it. I just hope it passes close enough to make it good for us astronomers!
  3. When you really stop and think about the universe, numbers and distances involved it really does become awe inspiring
  4. I'm currently doing a electronic engineering distance learning course and the maths/equations in that are pretty hairy! Vincent1cat - have you got an example of a maths problem in the introductory course? Thanks
  5. thanks for all your replies. ill have to have a look around.
  6. Hi all!, Quick question. Me, the other half and our 2 year old are looking to go on a family holiday in July and im hoping to tie it in with stargazing. Are there any star parties anywhere in the UK in July? or are there any nice dark skies which the surrounding areas is good for family entertainment during the day....or am i asking to much Any recommendations would be much appreciated! Thanks fellow star gazers! Clear skies!

  8. All clear in East Anglia. Just had a good 30 mins with my bins. Had a look at Jupiter and its 4 moons (i think 4), Orion nebula, the pleiades etc... a good 30 mins re-kindle my love with the skies.......still saving for my first scope Clear skies all !
  9. You lucky so and so ! I too want to see the unboxing of this beast! Can't wait to see some AP done with this also. Clear skies!
  10. yep, that's what i heard. didn't Paul Abel post on here stating that ?. That's all the people they need, i hope they don't try and change it.
  11. Lucky you ! Im still trying to save the money for mine Oh and clear skies !
  12. I agree. Dara is always trying to crack jokes with every sentence its so annoying. The two best people they had on over the three nights were Brian May and Chris Lintott. Chris Lintott knows what hes on about and can get it across well. Brian Cox is obviously very passionate about what he does and gets excited which is cool to see but maybe needs to drop it a notch. I watched the latest S@N before stargazing live and it blew stargazing live out of the water and its only 30 mins long. At least on S@N they had first time astronomers on with there different scopes and you could see what they looked like and how they work. If the show generates more young people to get involved in Astronomy and Science then i'm all for it but personally i thought the show could have been 100 times better than what it was.
  13. yep 100 times better than last night, some actual views of stars and galaxies etc.. Even Dara was ok tonight! I do get the feeling though that Brian Cox could be a bit of a nightmare when trying to have a conversation with him lol
  14. Then why would they be watching a program called 'Stargazing Live' ?
