Many of us stare at the stars in wonder; some go further and buy themselves telescopes or binoculars to expand the view; others get the urge to make their own telescopes and AMATEUR TELESCOPE MAKERS OF LONDON exists to fulfill that need. Imagine the thrill of stargazing through a telescope of your own making. CATS is nationally unique and continues in its fiftieth year at Holly Lodge Community Centre. Affiliated to Hampstead Scientific Society, whose historic public observatory at the top of Hampstead is nearby, we have helped many aspiring astronomers to create their own instruments and to further their appreciation of the heaven’s marvels. Course members are provided with all the materials and professional guidance necessary to make a mirror for a telescope and help and advice on the construction of the telescope’s structure, how to set it up and how to use it. Previous experience is not necessary and only everyday DIY tools are used. This is a hands-on course. LOOK FOR US ON FACEBOOK

Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Are we alone in the universe? Is our galaxy teeming with alien life, or is our small blue planet the lone island of life in an otherwise dead universe? The discovery of exoplanets, planets orbiting other stars, has been explosive. The number of known exoplanets is now well over 3000. Some of these planets are rocky, and are the right distance from their star, not too hot and not too cold, for life. Do these planets have atmospheres? Could life have started on their surfaces? Are there signs of life on other planets that we would have a chance to see from Earth, and how do we find these signatures? Dr Rimmer will talk about how far exoplanet science has come to answering these questions, and how far we still need to go in our search for life on other worlds.
