Holes in the Heavens

If you look out toward our galaxy the Milky Way you will see an uneven distribution of stars.  In certain parts of the Milky Way, between the stars, things can get a little murky.

In the constellation of Sagittarius for example there are dark patches that become particularly noticeable towards the point of the Galactic Centre. It was the British astronomer William Herschel who, in the 18th Century, described these regions where starlight from distant stars appears to dim as “holes in the heavens”.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe - Cosmomicrobia and the Nature of Intersteller Dust

We are please to announce that Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe will join us at the 5th Annual British Exopolitics Expo at the University of Huddersfield on Saturday September 28th, 2013.

Chandra Wickramasinghe was a student and collaborator of the renowned astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle. Their joint work on the nature and composition of interstellar dust led to the thesis of cosmomicrobia (panspermia) in which microbial life incident from space seeded life on Earth.
