Apollo 11

Weds 17th April – 45th Annual General Meeting, Apollo 11 short talk and Observatory tour

Wednesday 17th April marks the date of the 45th Annual General Meeting of the Association. The purposes of the meeting are to review the activities of the past year, elect a new Council for the coming year and for the Council to receive feedback from the membership on how they – that’s you – would like to see the Association develop.


This year there will be two additional features to add to the formal business.

Firstly, Past President Paul Evans will bring his Apollo at 50 series of talks up to date with a short talk about Apollo 11 – the mission that achieved President Kennedy’s goal of Landing a Man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.

Secondly, Prof Alan Fitzsimmons will run tours of the Observatory on top of the Physics Building for those interested.

All are welcome, though of course only paid up members are eligible to vote on business matters. Doors open about 7.15pm. There is free parking available on the campus in the evenings. Admission Free, including light refreshments thelockboss. We are located in the Bell Theatre, Department of Mathematics and Physics, QUB – details here……
