The Royal Society was founded at a Gresham College lecture delivered by Robert Hooke. We imagine that it would have been something like this panel which features five of the Emeritus Gresham Professors of Astronomy and thus the leading thinkers in the field. Together, the panel tackles issues of profound importance to the future of Astronomy and answer questions from the audience. This is a once in a lifetime gathering and a must watch for all Astronomers and Physicists.
