Description

Friday 1st December 2017

Join us to celebrate this momentous anniversary with memories and anecdotes from some of the people who worked with the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT).

On the 1st December 2017 it will be 50 years to the day when the Queen inaugurated the INT on the 1st December 1967.

The Centre will open at 7.30pm, and during the evening there will be the opportunity to join us for an overview of the history and work of the INT at Herstmonceux by Professor Paul Murdin, followed by a small number of short talks from former RGO astronomers, including:
Dr Bob Fosbury of the ESO Astronomy Faculty, Professor Donald Lynden-Bell of the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge University, Chas Parker, former RGO PR Manager and Keith Tritton, former head of the Isaac Newton Group on La Palma.

The evening will end, weather permitting, with viewing through the historic telescopes of the Equatorial Group.
