Revealing the Cosmos – February 2015


Ballarat Observatory will be hosting a monthly lecture series. Each lecture is aimed at simplifying the various developments in scientific research – from the mysteries of our Galaxy, to shape and size of the Universe, what the Universe is made of and beyond! These lectures assume no prior knowledge of science or mathematics, just an open mind!

After the lecture, join Saeed Salimpour (Science Officer) for a Q&A session. If the weather is fine, viewing through the telescopes will allow you see some of the wonders of the universe. Bookings essential
