Surfing the Cosmos: Talk by Martin Hendry tonight

In having Martin Hendry coming to speak on Saturday, Jersey has probably one of the highest ranking professors that has ever visited, and one dedicated and passionate about public engagement in science. Expect a talk that will expand your mind but in terms that you can understand. 
Martin is Professor of Gravitational Astrophysics and Cosmology in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow, where he was first appointed a faculty member in 1998, and where he is currently Head of School.
In 2011 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, in recognition of his contributions to research, teaching and the public understanding of science. In January 2015 he was awarded an MBE for services to public engagement in science in the Queen's New Year Honours list.
Please come along in a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear a Professor who can engage with children, adults, and has even been invited to a conference at the White House (and I don't mean the one in St Ouen!)
Saturday night - 7.30 pm, St Brelade's Church Hall - Parking in next door Rectory field.
