The Universe in 3D – 23rd August 2007

At our August meeting at the Scout Hall in Green Street Green, Greg Smye-Rumsby presented us with a fine selection of three-dimensional image. Some were constructed from raw distance data, others used pairs of images, and many were constructed by using the cues in a single image. A few were of star fields, galaxies and nebulae. The majority featured ojects in our own Solar System. While many of the images from various space probes and manned missions have become quite familiar, the extra dimension gives them more impact, and helps bring out features which might otherwise remain almost un-noticed.
