Luton Astronomical Society would like to confirm that we will conform to Government Covid Guidelines on for all our room based meetings once we are able to reintroduce them. Additionally we will comply with any local restrictions as instructed by our venue partner at Putteridge Bury.
All members and guests will be expected to comply with any rules in place at the time.
We look forward to being able to resume our monthly room based meetings and our Observation Evenings at Putteridge Bury as soon as it is safe to do so.
We have a scheduled online meeting on 29th April at 8pm.
Celebrating Human Spaceflight
The 12th April is International Day of Human Spaceflight, that celebrates the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s historic launch (1961) and the launch of the first space shuttle (1981).
2021 is a special anniversary of these events as it is 60 and 40 years respectively since these events took place.
To mark these events we will go through the history that led up to the first historic flight by Yuri in Vostok I.
**The Space Shuttle is not forgotten and will have it’s own meeting dedicated to it at the end of June, which coincides with the 10th Anniversary of its last flight.
