Would you just ‘urge’ or ‘strongly urge’ people to go 😉

Such cool things the ANU has on all the time. Ya gotta love this town…

Most unfortunate that Science Week clashes with the Olympics this year though, as ANU has had a (‘scuse the Hollowmen reference) raft of good speakers on.

I was in the ADF with Mr. Di Pietro. Very nice man from memory, also a very, very experienced pilot
