Sixth Session of the Year

Hi everyone!

Welcome to our sixth session of the year. This Friday, our Research Head, Rong’en will be presenting one of the most important topics in astronomy, the cosmic distance ladder. Given the vastness of our
Universe, something as mundane as measuring distance can be surprisingly daunting. Yet, it is not just about finding how large the Universe is, but rather how small we are in scale of things.

Do note that we will still be holding our stargazing session (if weather is clear) at the engine bridge and the details of the presentation are as follows:

Date: Friday, 11 March, 2011
Time: 7:00pm
Venue: E5-03-21

PS: For those who have signed up for AstroBash and wish to make payment on Friday, we have brought along extra copies for the indemnity and swimming declaration forms. Please help to check your
Passport Issue Date and inform Jia Wei.
