June 2010 Meeting Report

A very big thank you to Professor Ryan Hickox, an STFC Fellow at the University of Durham, who came to speak to us about the Growth of Galaxies and Supermassive Black Holes.

Ryan flew in from Paris, having spent several days reviewing the latest data from the Herschel space telescope.

If you'd like to know more about Ryan check out http://www.dur.ac.uk/ryan.hickox/

There was much interest in the talk, which appealed to young and advanced with plenty of opportunity for questions (and a pint in the pub after the talk)!

There will be no meetings in July or August due to summer holidays. So the next society meeting will be 28th September 2010.
