We have helped many aspiring astronomers to create their own instruments and to further their appreciation of the heaven’s marvels. Course members are provided with all the materials and professional guidance necessary to make a mirror for a telescope and help and advice on the construction of the telescope’s structure, how to set it up and how to use it.

Asteroids - A Waste of Space? A talk by Professor Malcolm Coe
Hampshire Astronomical Group
Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Jul 12, 2019
Time: 19.30 for 19.45
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Asteroids are becoming increasingly of great interest to us. Over many years we have become aware of the great potential threat they represent to the Earth, with the scars of their impacts littering our planet. But now we are beginning also to look at them in a more positive light as we start to think about asteroids as a future resource for both our planet and space travel. This talk will focus on the latter aspect, starting off with a review of the nature of these objects. Where do we find them, what are they made of and then, what do we want to get from them? It will finish with a few thoughts on the looming legal battles as to who exactly has the right to mine these objects - all of us, or just those who get there first?  The Lecturer: Malcolm Coe is a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Southampton. His research normally focuses on the life cycles of stars in different types of galaxies, a topic on which he has published over 200 papers. But in 2017 he was honoured by having an asteroid the size of the Isle of Wight named after himself - 9015 Coe. This had led to a new international collaboration with astronomers in the USA to start thinking seriously about the approaches one could use to identify commercially interesting asteroids.
