Last December I joined the Newcastle Astronomical Society [NAS: http://www.nas.org.au/ ], thatâ€™s in Newcastle here in NSW, Australia â€“ not the UK. When they had learned that I write the Space | Astronomy | Cosmology news for Cosmo magazine (sometimes) they invited me to give a series of talks â€“ which I was surprised about as they usually have academics delivering such presentations, but agreed nervously. Still nervous about it :-)
Anyway, then came the problem about what to talk about â€“ as there is so much but being an Astronomical society they arenâ€™t interested in mathematical or highly technical presentations, and so I borrowed some work from this course for the 1st presentation:
I wrote my Essay about Moon discoveries, the title being: â€œMoon Discoveries & The Presence of Waterâ€ Itâ€™s a very interesting subject, and there has been many more tests and detections of water, in some form, on the Moon than most realise â€“ so I decided to turn this essay, into a 1 hour presentation, it had to be expanded somewhat, with more photos etc., but it should go well.
The title of the talk is â€œWater on the Moon,â€ and is to at University of Newcastle, 3rd February â€“ would invite any who are interested but itâ€™s a bit far to travel â€“ check out the link:
