WARNING: Train Disruption for Satellite 7

Avanti West Coast have informed Glasgow City Marketing Bureau that National Rail are undertaking major works on the West Coast rail line between Carlisle and Glasgow/Edinburgh over a 10 weekend period, including the weekend of Satellite 7. We have been advised that there will be no train services from Glasgow to Carlisle on the Saturday, Sunday, or Monday of the convention. Replacement bus services will be in operation. Services on East Coast lines are unaffected. More information can be found at the Avanti West Coast website

Satellite 7 are disappointed to hear of this disruption, which will impact on some of our members. We hope you understand that it is due to circumstances entirely beyond our control, and are able to make or adjust your travel plans accordingly.

The Journal of pSeudoscience

After critical acclaim for Volume 1, Satellite Conventions is looking to publish another edition of The Journal of pSuedoscience. As before we want to educate discerning fans with information on the latest pScientific discoveries (e.g. perpetual motion machines, galactic travel by mushroom). Submissions should be of a pSuedoscientific nature, the more amusing or outrageous the better.

Please see here for submission details and a link to Volume 1 of the Journal.
