Tonight’s talk will be given by Keith Townsend. Launched on 12th August 2018, this adventurous probe will complete many firsts during the next seven years. It will become the fastest man-made object at around 432,000 miles per hour, it will fly closer to the sun than any other object, passing less than four million miles from the surface and it will be the first to physically encounter the sun’s corona.
There will be a brak following the talk and then an astronomy news update from Gordon Ewen.
This will be a Zoom meeting.
