May 2009 Meeting Report

It was good to see such a good turn out for our May meeting. We covered a lot of ground in the meeting, spending so much time debating the latest news and literally 'life the universe and everything' that we ran out of time for a refreshment break!

Following the news round up Jeremy gave us an update on the Hubble repair mission and some of the background to the amazing space telescope. After that Chris provided an update on ESA's latest missions Herschel and Planck.

Thanks again to Dennis for producing a comprehensive newsletter, I'll post a pdf version as a separate post.
