Subject: Geminids, Lecture, TV Prog

Hi all,

Hope you all saw at least a few Geminids? I saw 8, in a couple of spells of 
observing, but didn't manage any proper sessions due to lack of time. 

Another reminder that the last IAA lecture this year will be by yours truly, 
again on the subject "Aliens, - Where Are They?" As this will be the 6th 
performance in Ireland, I can only presume either that they aren't already here in 
disguise, or that they actually like the lecture....  Details:

Wednesday 17 December, 7.30 p.m. Irish Astronomical Association,  Public 
Lecture: "Aliens: Where Are They?", by Terry Moseley, past President Irish 
Astronomical Association. 7.30 p.m., Lecture Room 5, Stranmillis College, Belfast. 
Admission free, including light refreshments, all welcome. I'll be considering 
the possibility of life, particularly intelligent life, elsewhere in the 
universe, and the likelihood of contact between us, and of visits from, or to, them.

The next HORIZON programme might be of interest. It's on Thursday 18, at 
9.00, BBC2, on the subject of "Time", and the possibility of 'time travel'. Any of 
you who attended the recent excellent event in Armagh on the subject will no 
doubt be interested. One of the topics will be Prof. Frank Tipler's proposed 
'time machine' - theoretically possible, they say, if you can build something 
with half the mass of our galaxy!
   This programme was first shown in February 2046....

Enjoy, and Clear Skies,

Terry Moseley
