Well, the final purchases are being made as the doors close on AstroFest 2011. It's been an absolutely fantastic two days, thank you to everyone involved - especially you guys for coming! We still have a number of video blog entries to edit and upload, but in the meantime, check out our latest photo album here

I think we've all deserved that drink now... I'm off to the Tweetup at The Devonshire Arms just down the road, see you there! 

A lot of books for Brian Cox to sign!

| No Comments
Professor Brian Cox was kept busy for several hours signing his book Wonders of the Solar System. I was lucky enough to be in the room helping with the signings, but I hear the queue wrapped around the exhibition, down the stairs, and out of the front door! Brian also delivered an excellent talk to a packed out conference hall on the Large Hadron Collider and particle physics.
