Eddington and archaeology of Cambridge's science

Monday 21st October 2019, 1:00pm – 2:00pm

Monday 21 October: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, Seminar room, Downing Street, CB2 3ER

This year marks the centenary of Eddington’s demonstration of Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, conducted from the Island of Principe off of West Africa. As Director of Cambridge’s Observatory, Eddington’s achievement is now duly commemorated in the naming of the University’s North West Cambridge development, and this wide-ranging talk from Prof. Simon Schaffer and Christopher Evans will introduce his many contributions to astronomy.

It will also outline other highlights of the ‘archaeology’ of Cambridge’s early science, particularly those recently unearthed at West Cambridge and the Observatory. Foremost amongst these was the excavation in 2010 of the Newall telescope. Entitled an ‘Imperial Philosophical Machine’, this much-travelled instrument in its time was the world’s largest telescope and, considered in context, raises issues of both deep time and space.


Run For Your Life Eddington

Thursday 24th October 2019, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Thursday 21st March 2019 7:00pm

Very friendly ‘get into running’ session for complete beginners, every Thursday from Eddington Sainsbury’s.

Run/walk totally fine – and we’ll help you get to continuous running. If you are up and running already, you’ll enjoy an intervals session on the same ‘course’ – all welcome, if you’re ready to support those getting into running. The only thing you need is a high vis top (can’t run with us without it)
