The RAS website, www.ras.org.uk, has been redesigned to include a new look, easier navigation and to make use of the latest web tools, such as online voting and forums.  The site includes press releases on astronomical research, society news, details of upcoming meetings, RAS publications and an online catalogue for the RAS library and archive.  The site also includes information on becoming a member, the society’s aims, objectives and history, and a virtual tour of the RAS headquarters in historic Burlington House in central London.

David Elliott, Executive Secretary for the RAS said, “The Royal Astronomical Society has an important role to play in promoting astronomy and geophysics, both in the UK and around the world. It is, therefore, vital that the Society has an up-to-date and accessible presence on the World Wide Web.  We are delighted with the new website and hope that members of the Society and the public will find it a valuable source of information.”

The new website was designed by High Performance Strategies.
