Jodrell Bank is organizing First Light, a weekend of events celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the first observations with the Lovell Telescope. There are several events that weekend but do not miss Saturday 4 August, 7:30pm An Audience with Sir Bernard Lovell.
Jodrell Bank describe the evening as “An extremely rare opportunity to hear the Founder and First Director of Jodrell Bank Observatory talk about his life and work, including the creation of the giant radio telescope which now bears his name. A unique reflection on the development of radio astronomy from its earliest days on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Lovell Telescope.“
I certainly wish I could be there but unfortunately I cannot. One of you will have to let me know how good it was!
