'The Vikings at Barsoom pt 1' Orbital Operations. SORRY CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS

Guest Speaker

Thursday, 27th September 2018 (19:45 - 22:00)

Venue: Meeting Room, Swinton Bottom Club (Formerly Swinton WMC)

CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS

Roy Gunson is preparing a stand in. 

 

 In this talk Paul takes a look at the early flyby missions to Mars and the Mariner 9 and Viking Orbiter missions. The Viking Orbiter mission is often overshadowed by the Landers search for life yet were an important phase of the mapping of Mars from orbit.

Speaker: Paul Money

I am an English Amateur Astronomer who has had a love for the night sky since I was 'knee high to a grasshopper' (or so the saying goes!). As far back as I can recall I used to look up at the night sky and just gaze in wonderment at all the twinkling points of light without really understanding or even wanting to understand what they actually were. That would come later as I began to read any 'space' related book or magazine I found either at home or at school. I can just about remember the days of Apollo and for most of my early years the interest was more in becoming an Astronaut rather than exploring the Universe with a Telescope.
