The New Solar System

SPEAKER: Roger Moses BSc PhD MinstP FBIS

He studied physics and mathematics at Bristol University, then stayed on to do research on the cosmic radiation for a PhD. This continued afterwards for 15 years, developing larger and larger electronic cosmic ray detectors to fly on high altitude balloons and satellites.

He then moved sideways to lecture in engineering, teaching undergraduates space technology and running continuing professional education programmes for engineers in industry – anything from Earthquake Engineering to Heat Pumps in Farming. He has always been interested and active in encouraging the Public Understanding of Science, giving public classes and lectures around the West of England.

He retired from full time work 13 years ago, but still lectures on Aircraft and Space Engineering in both Bristol University and UWE. He isa Member of the Institute of Physics, Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society, and locally, a member of the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, the Bristol Astronomical Society and many wildlife conservation groups and an active volunteer on the Somerset Levels Nature Reserves.
