Join us on the first Sunday of each month to celebrate life with Edinburgh’s ‘secular congregation’, sing, listen to talks and poems, reflect, meet people and eat cake. This month we’re celebrating 50 years since the moon landings with Royal University Edinburgh’s Alistair Bruce, who currently splits his time between researching active galactic nuclei and working for the James Webb Space Telescope UK Public Engagement Campaign. Alistair will be talking about how the moon missions were accomplished using some Lego props, which will be fun as well as amazing. He writes:
“Only 24 humans have ever gone to the Moon. Only twelve of those have walked on the surface of our nearest neighbour. One brought some tartan along for the ride. Journey with a space-race geek who never got to see a Saturn V fly and still won’t forgive himself for missing a Space Shuttle launch. How did we do it? Why did we do it? And what the heck does “SCE to AUX” mean?”
We will also have poetry, songs to sing, and Scott will be ‘doing his best’. The whole event is family (and dog) friendly (we have a special baby table as well as Lego and colouring), fun and free. Join us to meet people as we all strive to Live Better, Help Often and Wonder More.
Venue as always is Lifecare Edinburgh, 2 Cheyne Street, Stockbridge EH4
