FREE all day conference to celebrate 50 years since Apollo 11

Recommended Posts

Three organisations have organised a full FREE Astronomy and Science Conference to celebrate 50 years since Apollo 11.

The poster shown below gives more information.

We have approval to show an original Apollo Space Suit and will have Moon Rock on display. You won't believe the security requirements for this!!

BT has given approval to allow a site visit around their Earth Station - this link will tell you so much more - this is a fantastic site - https://www.globalservices.bt.com/btfederal/en/products/satellite_services/earth_stations

There is activities for children and food is available on site.

Remember this is FREE but places are limited to 120 so if you want to come you need to apply now using this link - https://bit.ly/2IeEa7Z

I am part of the committee that has organised the 'giant leap' conference and I am not sure what you mean. If you want to attend you simply register for the free event.

Thanks for posting that - the short answer is don't know. I can only assume one is related to the children's activity. However, I will ask the organiser from Project Link and come back to you.

Update - I have sent an email to Christianne

Just back from this really enjoyable event. Thanks to Mark and all at Herefordshire Astronomical Society and for the folks with the Madeley Centre for such a nice venue :smiley:

Shall we have a 51st celebration this time next year ? :grin:

Lovely to see you and chat again John. Months of hard work setting up the conference- great to see so many people enjoying astronomy.

I even got Pam (wife) to visit and check what I have been up to.

Well done Mark, superb event - I know you have at least one new member for Hereford Astro. Great final discussion on what the future may hold - perhaps different rocket power....

Good job I only just noticed this - I've put in a good day's work today, but I would have been sorely tempted!

I'm really disappointed that I had to pull out of this event, I'm pleased to hear it went so well.
