The best places to observe the night sky also have some of the most
extreme conditions on the planet. British astronomers have access to
telescopes at an altitude of 4,200m on the summit of Mauna Kea, on the
Big Island of Hawai'i. This talk is a personal perspective on making
astronomical observations in harsh conditions using the UK infra-red
telescope atop Mauna Kea.
There will be a limited number of festive refreshments available in the Physics and Astronomy Foyer from 6pm.
