AGM and Chairman’s Address – 27th February 2003

Our Annual General Meeting was followed by two talks. The first, from our President Gilbert Satterthwaite was a short tribute to the Pioneer 10 space probe, which has finally fallen silent. Gilbert gave us a brief overview of its contribution to planetary exploration, with particular emphasis on its images from Jupiter, the first ever close-up views of the planet. After the break our Chairman Greg Smye-Rumsby gave us an enthusiastic lightning tour of the Solar System using many fine illustrations displayed to excellent effect using the data projector.
