down at the docks and up in the sky

After entertaining sailors and random others in a bar in the docks with stories of the wonders of deep space ( a public 'science in the pub' type event), I'm turning now to the latest episode of our video series and it will be online soon. The theme will be the Big Bang and the universe on the largest scales.

In the meantime, may I suggest that if you are keen on seeing what stars and planets are visible from your location at any time, and would like to explore the night sky in some detail, that you download and install the free Stellarium software? Versions run on Mac, Windows and Linux and its fun and extremely simple to use.
