Lecture: The Invention of Radioastronomy (Dutch)
Wed. 28 September: Prof. Dr. Dirk van Delft (Univ. Leiden)
The discovery by Hendrik van de Hulst of the 21cm radio wave in the universe and with it the invention of radio astronomy.
As part of Leiden European City of Science 2022 ('Leiden 2022'), the Leiden Circle of Weather and Astronomy (LWSK) is organising four lectures on important astronomical discoveries in Leiden. This is also in line with the Leiden Route of Discoveries, which is included in the presentation of Leiden 2022 as Science Route.
The lectures are intended for the general public. The Observatory is of course the iconic location for these activities. Starting at 20.00, the lectures can be expected to finish around 21.30. The location is in Leiden. After registration, the exact location will be announced by e-mail.
Admission is free, but only after registering in advance. Your name will then be registered on the admission list.
Members of the Leiden amateur societies (LWSK, WLS) also need to register. There is no priority for them. Due to the limited seating capacity (about 50 persons per evening), it is likely that interested parties will have to be disappointed.
You can register now.
