Malcolm Blackmore's auction on Sunday raised a magnificant GBP 26.86 - so
OxLUG now has some funds!  Thanks to everyone who contributed and

7.30pm 9th December, Prof. A P Willmore, Professor of Space Research,
School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Birmingham.

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990, and was intended to tackle 
its objectives in a far superior way to what could be obtained on the 
ground.  Once the initial problems with the optical system were resolved 
(after  launching) Hubble has contributed in an important way to our 
understanding  of the formation of stars, the formation and development of 
galaxies and the evolution of the Universe. No prior knowledge of this 
subject is assumed.

We will be holding the meeting at the Wolfson Building, South Parks Road, 
Oxford.  Please use the link below to see a local map.
