Yes! It IS rocket science.

Our speaker on Tuesday 15 November is one of our own members, Colin Barbour, who teaches Physics at St.Joseph's Academy in Kilmarnock.  The title of his talk is, "From von Braun to the Moon Landing.".  He will be telling us about the scientists and engineers who developed the V1 and V2 rockets in Nazi Germany and how the personnel and technologies of these projects made their way to the USA and formed the basis of the American programme to land a man on the Moon.

As always, come early to be sure of a good seat.
