Welcome back after our Summer break!

    • Dr Will Cochrane (UK Astronomy Technology Centre)
      MOONS
      The Multi-Object Optical and Near-infrared Spectrograph (MOONS) is an instrument currently being developed at the UK ATC here in and will be installed on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile.
 
    • Dr Hugh Pumphrey (School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh)
      The Microwave Limb Sounder
      The Microwave Limb Sounder is a small radio telescope mounted on a satellite, looking at our atmosphere. It has made many interesting discoveries about the Ozone layer and global pollution, and has even done a bit of radio astronomy on the side! 
 
    • Dr Mariangela Bonavita (Institute for Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
      Binary stars
      Binary stars: how do they form, how many are there, why are they important and are there planets around them too? Basically, what we really want to know is… is Tatooine out there somewhere?!
