Screening: Star Men

This event has finished Took place on: Sunday, 24th Jun 2018

Four exceptional British astronomers — Donald Lynden-Bell, Roger Griffin, Neville Woolf and Wallace Sargent, reunite for a final road trip across the American Southwest in Star Men (2015), directed by Alison E Rose.

Celebrating 50 years of work and friendship, the four retired astronomers recount their parts played in the most exciting period in astronomy’s history – the Space Race of the 1960s.

As they journey through breathtaking landscapes and under spectacular star-filled skies, they reflect on how their work on the universe has illuminated the individual, affected their sense of religious faith, the purpose of life, and what is knowable and unknowable.

Cost: £13.24
