Pierre Maxted

Pierre Maxted will talk to us about Astronomy.

Dr Pierre Maxted is an astronomer working at Keele Unversity in Staffordshire. He has a background in making observations of binary stars to study how they can interact to produce unusual and dramatic systems like supernovae. He is now part of the team at Keele that operates the SuperWASP-South instrument (see below) that is scanning the Southern sky for new planets.
