200 Years of Astronomy - Talk by Prof Mike Edmunds

The Royal Astronomical Society was founded in 1820. This talk will start by briefly looking at the state of astronomy in the early 19th century, see why the Society was was formed, and who were its colourful bunch of original 14 founders. The second part of the talk will be a breakneck survey of what has happened since.
