    May's Monthly Meeting will be a talk by @Euan Mason "Aliens: Where are they?"

    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 Von Haast 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.

    More information about my talk:

    Drake's function provides a framework for analysing the probability of finding intelligent alien life for us to communicate with. Examining the likely bounds for each term in the equation is fun & informative, but also sobering. It perhaps explains why we haven't heard from aliens yet.
