DATA: From fiction to fact
with Richard Hall
Mars is a world of mysteries. It resembles the Earth more closely
than any other planet in the Solar System and there is mounting
evidence that, like the Earth, it too was a cradle of life. There are
even those who believe that we have descended from Martians. In
this lecture we explore the Red Planet and discuss the mysteries
of its past.

by Kay Leather
How close are we to creating an artificial human being? Kay
will explore the latest developments in creating artificial
tissues, muscles and neural pathways. She will look at
biofuels for artificial organs, growing replacement organs,
ponder the Human Brain Project and consider gene
manipulation.
Observing: After the meeting, weather permitting, we will
take a look at Jupiter, the asteroids Ceres and Vesta, and
the Moon.
