Cosmology Interest Group

CIG Page Image
The Cosmology Interest Group is a sub-group of the Lincoln Hills
Astronomy Group.
We meet to
to provide a forum for learning and discussing
cosmology, the study of the origin, characteristics, and fate of
universe or universes. The CIG provides an excellent
opportunity for those who
have an interest in astronomy/cosmology
to learn about, as well as to meet and discuss ideas
with others having
like interests. Mathematics is purposely minimized and is not
to understand the concepts.

We meet on the third Monday of the month.
No meeting in December
