Venus - Earth’s Evil Twin

Speaker: Roy Gunson

Roy Gunson will be talking about “Venus - Earth’s Evil Twin” (Good for Valentine’s Day!).  An in depth look at the Earth’s evil twin, our nearest planetary neighbour. We look at a “day or two on Venus”, it’s atmosphere, magnetic field, and surface geology. We discover it’s “Ticks” and “Pancakes” and is there a sea of liquid gas at 750 degrees Kelvin?

Roy retired after 32 years at Sheffield Hallam University.  He has been an amateur astronomer since age 10 or so and is currently Vice-Chair of Mexborough & Swinton Astronomical Society.
