Tuesday, 5 June 2012: 6:30 for 7:00pm: CCANESA Boardroom, Madsen Building, University of Sydney.
The AAIA with the support of the Kytherian Association of Australia present a FREE PUBLIC LECTURE by PROFESSOR John Hugh Seiradakis, Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
The Antikythera Mechanism was a portable (laptop-size), geared mechanism, built ca. 150–100 BCE, which calculated and displayed, with high precision, the movement of the Sun and the Moon on the sky and the phase of the Moon for a given epoch. It could also predict eclipses and calculate the dates of the Olympic Games. No complicated geared instruments are known before the Antikythera Mechanism and for several centuries after. Therefore, this astronomical device stands out as an extraordinary proof of high tech in ancient times.
Professor John Seiradakis obtained his degree in Physics from the University of Athens and is now Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
