Staff and students from MSSL attended the RAS National Astronomy Meeting at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, this week, presenting 26 talks and posters on their latest scientific discoveries and technological advances in astronomy, solar physics and solar-planetary physics (listed below).

More than 600 astronomers and space scientists attended the RAS National Astronomy Meeting (NAM 2013), held in conjunction with the UK Solar Physics and Magnetosphere Ionosphere Solar Terrestrial meetings. NAM 2013 is principally sponsored by the RAS, STFC and the University of St Andrews and formed part of the ongoing programme to celebrate the University's 600th anniversary.
