Contact Derek Buckle
Tuesday 08 January 2019
John Tyndall (c.1822-93) was one of the outstanding mountaineers of the Golden Age, first ascensionist of the Weisshorn and first to traverse the Matterhorn. He was also a leading scientist, seen by many as the founder of climate science, and the first person to explain why the sky is blue. Roland Jackson (an AC member) has just written his biography, and will tell the story of his life, climbs, and provocative positions on science and religion.
