On Friday 12th May, at the 2017 Annual General Meeting in Burlington House, Piccadilly, Charles Barclay, GTC Associate Fellow, was elected Vice-President of the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS).

Charles is Director of the Blackett Observatory at Marlborough College and is considered to be at the forefront of UK Astronomy education. He is chair of examiners for Edexcel GCSE Astronomy and an Academic visitor in Oxford University Astrophysics sub-department and Associate Fellow of GTC.

The RAS has its origins in 1820 with the objective simply being the promotion of astonomy with the newer subject of geophysics being added later. It received its Royal Charter in 1831 and previous Vice-Presidents include John Herschel and Charles Babbage.
