NSAS General Meeting for May; special speaker

1 05 2017

The NSAS General Meeting for May will be on Tuesday the 16th May at 7:30 PM at Regis Hall, Regis Campus, St Ignatius College, Lane Cove.

Our guest speaker is Glenn Davis from Francis Lord Optical, who will talking to us about the optics done by them for LIGO.

“Back in September 2015 Gravitational Waves were recorded for the first time, and verified the following February. The instrument that recorded the signal is called LIGO.
What few people  realise,  is that all the optics were manufactured in Australia by the CSIRO.
Glenn Davis who was one of the 13 people working on the project, will be talking about how these optics were  fabricated to such high tolerances!”

As usual, guests are most welcome!
