08:00 PM Presentation by Dr Joe Liske: staff astronomer at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Germany.

Dr Joe Liske is a staff astronomer at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Germany.
Having obtained his PhD in Sydney, Australia, he was a researcher at the Universities of St Andrews
and Edinburgh in Scotland before joining the European Southern Observatory in 2003.
He now spends half of his time trying to understand how galaxies like our own Milky Way formed,
while the other is dedicated to the science of the European Extremely Large Telescope project.

Joe will be telling us about his work at ESO, and about the world’s biggest telescope, the
European Extremely Large Telescope, and what we hope to find out with it.

Weather permitting, observing the wonderful Southern Hemisphere night sky.
