“How (on Earth) did Life Start” by James Fragley

What exactly is Life? Is it the DNA – or something more fundamental
about energy? And where on earth could it have started, with what
ingredients and in what conditions? What about Life coming to Earth from
elsewhere? Could it have originated in space, or travelled between
planets in our solar system? What ARE the chances of anything coming
from Mars?! James Fradgley is a hugely experienced speaker and Fellow of
the Royal Astronomical Society with a wide range of knowledge which he
will be applying to these questions and more.

The Vectis
Astronomical Society meets on the 4th Friday of every month, except for
December. This event is open for non-members to attend. The speakers
come from all over the country and give a presentation for around 45
mins. We then stop for a break with tea and biscuits, which gives an
opportunity to mingle and chat. The second half of the evening one of
our regular members will give a short 20 minute ‘what’s in the sky this
month’ presentation.
We have a suggested donation of £2.50 for Non Members of VAS.


(Friday) 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
