2024 calander currently being planned





Dear Members and Friends,

Our next lecture is from Prof Sean Paling about the experiments down Boulby Potash Mine.

Here is an extended abstract that wouldn't fit on the poster!!

Astronomers and physicists are convinced there is much more out in space than meets the eye.  As well as the stars & galaxies we can see on a clear night, observations suggest there is much more matter out there that we cannot see.  This is known as 'DARK MATTER' - the missing mass in the universe - and the race is on in the world science community to find out exactly what it is. 
For more than two decades UK and international astrophysicists have been operating experiments in a dedicated 'low background' facility, 1100m below ground at Boulby salt and Polyhalite mine in the North East of England. The Boulby scientists are trying to be the first to prove (or disprove) the favoured theory that Dark Matter is particles: as yet undetected subatomic particles all around us, each weighing just a small amount but together accounting for most of the mass of the Universe.
The search for Dark Matter at Boulby continues and is intensifying, with exciting new projects expecting to begin at the facility in the coming few years. In the meantime the range of science areas looking for the special properties of a facility like Boulby Underground is growing, including projects ranging from studies of geology and geophysics, Earth and environmental sciences, life in extreme environments on Earth and the development of technologies for looking for life beyond Earth.
This talk will give an overview of the Boulby Deep Underground Science Facility, the Dark Matter search experiments hosted and the new areas of deep underground science underway or emerging. The talk is open to all - no prior expertise in astrophysics or deep underground science is required...

Businesses and charities are being urged to strengthen their cyber security practices now as new figures show the frequency of cyber attacks is increasing. Almost one in three businesses (31 per cent) and a quarter (26 per cent) of charities suffering attacks said they now experience breaches or attacks at least once a week.

The North East Regional Cyber Crime Unit (NERCCU) in partnership with Cleveland Police, Durham Constabulary and Northumbria Police offer a range of products and services we offer to help you increase your cyber resilience.

Products and services are available for all businesses from start-ups to multinational.

Join us to find out more about these services and how they can help you.

Art within the Steel Industry

Venue:- St. Mary’s Centre, Corporation Road, Middlesbrough.
Speaker:- Philip Boville

Since 1973, the Teesside Steel Industry has been my inspiration for many of my paintings. The 27ft long Lackenby Medical Centre Mural, is one of my better-known works. My talk will take you on a unique journey through the eyes of an artist and technician who worked in the steel industry for just over 40 years. Today I use digital animation to bring another dimension to my work. Using this approach, you will see an example of how this medium has the potential to describe our heritage in a way never seen before.
