Founded in 1971, meeting monthly and still going strong, the B.S.F.G. is a non-profit-making organisation that provides an informal atmosphere in which SF fans can meet one another and professionals in the field. You can find out more about us elsewhere on this website, meanwhile here are some details of our next two meetings.

14th October 2016
OUT OF THE DARKNESS
PLUTO AND THE OUTER WORLDS

Andy Lound

Pluto's discovery in 1930 seemed to be the epitome of planetary discovery in the solar system; yet it was just the beginning of a new era of planetary discovery. This presentation traces the history of the discovery of Pluto and the exploration of this distant world by the New Horizons spacecraft. Pluto's position as a trans-Neptunian world is also examined. Illustrated with the latest images of Pluto, artwork and video; accompanied by music. Take an Odyssey into the darkness. Presented by Andy Lound who appears regularly on Big Centre TV, Radio 4 and Radio WM on subjects as diverse as the Titanic, Scott of the Antarctic, and various aspects of space exploration and astronomy.

PLACE: Briar Rose Hotel, Bennett's Hill

TIME: Doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8pm start.
