Steve Broadbent will be giving us a lecture on Astronomical Spectroscopy.
He is a member of the BAA and elected a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.
He is retired from the University of Portsmouth. Initially a chemist, he undertook research into reaction mechanisms. He used to run a spectroscopy laboratory and lectured in computational chemistry and programming.
As an aside he is an active member of and gives regular talks to the Hampshire Astronomical Group including "Constellation of the Month" as well as talks on specific interest areas such as astronomical spectroscopy and individual astronomical observatories.
