Subject: Dates confusion!,  TV, Lectures

Hi all,

1. Apologies for a mix-up re dates in my last email!  
Prof Bob Lambourne's lecture to the IAA at Stranmillis College, Belfast, is 
of course on Wed 30 March!  
   (I have the "29th" embedded in my brain at the moment, with all the 
planning for the eclipse next year!)
   Hope to see lots of you there for what promises to be a superb lecture.
