Next Meeting 24th April: Has JWST really seen the first stars?

Back in January Quanta Magazine (LINK) had an article entitled

“Astronomers Say They Have Spotted the Universe’s First Stars”

We will explore the evidence for this claim and also look at: what are the first stars – known as Population III stars, why are they different, when did they form, are there any around now, what’s the difference between them and our Population I Star.

Come along and contribute your thoughts and questions.  Usual time and place:-

7:30pm, Monday 24th April, upstairs in the Hen & Chickens, Flannel St, Abergavenny NP7 5EG
