Welcome to my bulletin for AIP members covering physics news and events for October 2011 and beyond.

This month European astronaut Hans Schlegel gives a public talkin Melbourne (6 October) and the next day, schools across the country will have the chance hear him via video conference.

“The Dish,” at CSIRO’s Parkes Observatory in NSW is celebrating its 50th anniversary by giving the public a rare chance to go up and through the iconic telescope on 8-9 October 2011.
