Event Description:  To celebrate World Space Week on Saturday 6 October, the Birmingham Astronomical Society and the Midlands Spaceflight Society will be staging fun family activities in Thinktank, Birmingham science museum. Come along and safely view the Sun through a Solar telescope, and then the planet Jupiter after sunset (weather permitting). Build your own Sputnik satellite to take home, and find out how you can become a member of these two inspiring local societies. Plus, Prof Francisco Diego from University College London will be visiting Thinktank on the day to deliver a special family talk entitled The Lives of Stars and People: From Astrology to Astrophysics. Humans have always marvelled at the night sky and ancient astrological beliefs claimed the stars controlled our destiny in some magical way. This entertaining lecture will demonstrate that the fascinating discoveries of modern astrophysics reveal our relationship with the stars to be more intimate and magical than we could ever imagine. In the lives of stars we discover not only our own origins and the origins of everything around us, but also our own destiny. To book tickets visit or call 0121 202 2222.
