    Dr Richard de Grijs (Erskine Fellow) "China’s Ambitions in Astronomy and Space Science”

    “He recently developed this talk in response to the inauguration of the FAST radio telescope in southern China and the recent launches of a number of science mission. In addition, a feature-length documentary titled “The Science of Heaven” which covers Chinese astronomy from the earliest evidence about 4000 years ago until future developments.”

    The CAS monthly meeting is held at 7:30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (except December and January), in room 275 of the Biology building of the University of Canterbury School of Biological Sciences. Any member of the public who is considering joining the Society or who has an interest in the subject being discussed is welcome to attend the meeting.

    Meetings will begin at 8:00 p.m. sharp. The meeting will be preceded by a tea-and-biscuits session from 7:30pm.
    We hope that this change will help keep the meetings short, while still allow time to chat.
