Saturday, February 10, 7 p.m.
Avonport, 475 Bluff Road

Speaker #1: Roy Bishop

Topic: Origin of the Chemical Elements

Summary: Recent spectral data from old stars in dwarf galaxies, together with optical and gravitational wave observations of the collision of two neutron stars, have given additional insight into the origin of the heavier elements.

Speaker #2: Gertrude Bishop

Topic: Contemplations about the Universe

Summary: The astronomer Neil DeGrasse Tyson put it this way:
“At one time or another every one of us has looked up at the night sky and wondered: What does it all mean? How does it all work? And, what is my place in the universe?

I will share some of my thoughts about the universe, and invite you to share your insights, as stargazers.
