Whatever happened to Sidereal Time?

Tomorrow (or is that today - why can't we keep GMT in the summer?) I'm off to the concrete wonders of Milton Keynes for the National Astronomy Meeting (NAM). The reception is tomorrow night and the first talks are on Tuesday. Perhaps I'll find out what happened to sidereal time in the Astronomy Education session. I am *still* not certain exactly which sessions I'll go to - it depends how I feel at the time. I don't know whether to go to 'Extraterrestrial sample analysis I' or the 'New ground-based telescopes'. The first has a talk by Dr Monica Grady (Do Kuiper Belt Objects fall to Earth as Meteorites?) but the second gives me a chance to heckle my supervisor!

Friday sees a series of talks on planetary exploration but there is no mention of Beagle 2 - I guess that the OU doesn't want to talk about it yet.
