Gravity – history to the present day – Garth Wilkinson

More widely, the meeting addressed the scientific & technological background of attendees, and concluded that there was sufficient “critical mass” to take the group forward on a self-help basis in terms of potential speakers.


New Science & Technology Group – first meeting announced
