Have your say

THERE is still chance to snap up a place at a unique stargazing event at the Historic Dockyard.

Dr David Bacon, from the University of Portsmouth’s Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, will be giving talks on the latest maps of the universe and discussing what they mean.

The maps were made using the most powerful telescopes ever built.

On Thursday HMS Warrior will play host to the Mary Rose Trust Education Teams, Hampshire Astronomical Group, Physics Ambassadors from Portsmouth Grammar School, the Portsmouth Undergraduate Physics Society and the Hampshire Branch of the British Science Association,

From 4pm to 9pm there will be a series of talks by the experts.

Although they are free booking is essential and many slots have already sold out.

The times still available are 4pm to 5pm. It is still possible to go on the waiting list for the 4pm to 6pm slot.
