September 2014: Newton, sun and ice. This month we take a look at a variety of events that were held at the Society, from the private life of Newton to new approaches in coronal heating. We hear from a volunteer at the Summer Science Exhibition, researchers looking at the ice reduction on the Arctic Sea as well as others that are at the forefront of the field of coronal heating. We also get a fascinating insight into Isaac Newton FRS and the forgotten papers that were found long after his death.
