Dr. Natalie Batalha works at NASA’s AMES Research Centre and will be speaking on, ‘A Planet for Goldilocks: The Search for Evidence of Life Beyond Earth’. This area of astronomy is and will be THE most exciting and cutting-edge topic for many years to come.This will be an excellent opportunity for people to listen to a lecture by a young female scientist that Time Magazine voted as being one of the 100 most influential people on the planet for 2017! This is a major scientific event for Gisborne and it would be excellent to see as many people there as possible. Some astrophotos taken from Gisborne by locals will be shown – as will an update on the Cook Observatory on Kaiti Hill.
