Mirror, Mirror...

Yesterday's lecture was a fascinating examination of the work on the new European Extra Large telescope. Prof. David Walker (University College, London, and Glyndwr University, Wrexham) spoke on the history of telescope design before talking about the background to the E-ELT, its design and manufacture.

Being of a not very practical nature, I wasn't expecting this to be my thing, but I found it riveting, not least due to Prof. Walker's engaging style and obvious enthusiasm.
