AGM invitation

Featuring Disinguished Professor Roy Kerr as guest speaker.
When:  6:30pm, Monday 20th May
Where: Club Mt Maunganui, 45 Kawaka St

Distinguished Professor Roy Kerr
is to become a Fellow of the Royal Society (UK), for his exceptional contributions to science, placing him among the world’s most eminent scientists. Professor Kerr has been in the news recently after astronomers captured the first image of a black hole, proving his 56-year-old solution correct.

Back in 1963, before advanced computers existed, with pen and paper Professor Kerr achieved what had eluded others for nearly half a century, solving some of the most difficult equations of physics by hand. He found the exact solution of Albert Einstein’s equations that describe rotating black holes.

We are delighted Professor Kerr will present a brief overview of his work at our AgM and would love you to join us.
A light supper will be served from 6:15pm
RSVP by May 13th to lin.pickard@houseofscience.nz or phone 0508 HOU SCI
