Astronomy Club

TQG’s Astronomy Club is provided for people of all ages. Each meeting features a journey through the solar system in our StarDome Planetarium, an enlightening talk about an aspect of stargazing, children’s activities, a competition, and of course — weather permitting — a chance for some actual stargazing with our telescopes, with experts on-hand with advice.

    If you have been attending the Techniquest Glyndŵr Astronomy Club on a regular basis then you are quite likely to have some interesting or burning astronomy questions.

    Post them in our question box during astronomy club evenings and see if your question is picked to be answered during this audience-led dome session. What would you like to see?

    Join us in our Science Theatre show to find out more about black holes, as we separate the known facts from the speculative fiction.

    What happens when equipment stops working in space?

    How can we deal with there being too much carbon dioxide? How can repairs to the ISS be made remotely from Earth?

    Work as a team with the show presenter to solve these problems.
