Cosmology in the 21st Century with Gary Fildes
October 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Harvest will once again be playing host to the Founder and Director of Kielder Observatory, Gary Fildes!
Local born Fildes founded Kielder Observatory; which receives over 20,000 visitors per year. Located within the recognised dark sky park of Kielder Forest, it is now one of the top ten stargazing sites in the world.
Fildes also received an honorary Master’s degree from Durham University in 2012 for services to astronomy and now a published author with his book, ‘An Astronomers Tale’, Fildes returns to chat to us about the Universe, time, major discoveries and the future of humanity itself in the cosmos.
Gary will also have the opportunity to talk about establishing his ‘Gary Fildes Astronomy Foundation’ – focussed on bringing disadvantaged people access to astronomy.
Talk begins at 7:30 with a small break for refreshments.
