20th June – The Next Blink of a Cosmic Eye: Astronomy in the next 200 years – Dr Megan Argo

In 2020 the Royal Astronomical Society celebrated its 200th anniversary.

From the first meeting, when fourteen gentlemen sat down to dinner at the Freemason’s Tavern in London in January 1820, the Society has grown to a diverse membership of more than 4000 geophysicists and astronomers, both amateur and professional.

Astronomy has come a long way in that time, and our understanding of the Universe has changed fundamentally.  What didn’t we know 200 years ago?  Where is astronomy going next?

Join Dr Megan Argo, from University of Central Lancashire, School of Natural Sciences, for a look at some exciting upcoming telescopes and future space missions, and some predictions for what we might discover in the next 200 years.
