This year, Exeter’s space:exe society once again attended the Sidmouth Science Festival, on Saturday 17th October, to raise awareness for the XRT-C Radio Telescope project. The public were excited to hear that the construction of the telescope is nearing completion! We also used the (ever popular) biscuit decorating as a chance to teach people about the Hubble Sequence for galaxy classification by asking people to ice biscuits to look like their favourite galaxy. All the pictures are on our facebook page.
