Glasgow Science Centre to host monthly astronomy talks

Glasgow Science Centre planetarium

The David Elder lecture series presents a line-up of fascinating talks by expert astronomers, spaceflight pioneers, award-winning science writers and broadcasters.

Hosted by Glasgow Science Centre in partnership with the University of Strathclyde, the lecture series continues the tradition of monthly astronomy lectures in Glasgow which began with the first David Elder Lecture in 1905.

This regular monthly programme of talks runs over the winter months each year. Each lecture costs only £6. Each lecture lasts approx. one hour and is best suited to older teenagers and adults.

Some aspects of the lectures are technical and they are therefore most likely to appeal to older teenagers and interested adults.
