In March we studied the Earth from its formation through many stages of solidification and tectonic plate movements and ice ages up to the present.

We meet again on Monday 9th April at 2:00pm at the Driftwood Spars, Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes for what will be the last of the present series of talks before the long summer recess.

In the autumn, I am thinking of starting again from the beginning and repeating the whole series for the benefit of folks who either haven't been before or who have missed certain topics this time.

We plan to look at the evidence for the spread of mankind from our early appearence in Africa, as we advanced and retreated throughout almost 800,000 years of evolution.

Many of us enjoy lunch together before the meeting, from 1:00pm. Do join us.

On 10th May Peter Goldsmith will talk on "A Look at Alternative Energy". 
You may wonder why a person without an “ology” thinks he has something to contribute to a science meeting. Well I worked in a scientific establishment from the tender age of 15, until my retirement 47 years later. So come along and find out. I will give a short description of my career in a research laboratory and how this research could be used to supply energy in the future. This will be followed by a description of some experiments from an engineering viewpoint. For the rest of the meeting I will discuss present energy supplies in terms of creation, distribution and storage.
On 14th June Phil Carson will talk on "Normal and Abnormal Blood Cell Morphology".
