Rotary Meeting - Speaker TG Tan
Amateur astronomer TG Tan will speak about planets around distant stars and his backyard observatory's role in one of the most important recent discoveries - that of the super-Earth LHS 1140b.
TG is a retired oil and gas engineer who built the plywood box known as the Perth Exoplanet Survey Telescope (PEST) Observatory in 2010 to see if it might be possible to detect exoplanets from the suburbs. Evidently it is, and TG has now co-discovered 31 planets.
