Posted on 11 May 2017

Prof. Sanjoy Bhattacharya has accepted an invitation to become a member of the advisory panel on the Science Museum’s major 5-year exhibition on the Sun

Prof. Sanjoy Bhattacharya (Professor of the History of Medicine and Director of the Centre for Global Health Histories) has become a member of the advisory panel on the Science Museum’s forthcoming five-year national and international touring exhibition about the Sun.

Revealing how the Sun has fundamentally shaped human life and the world we live in, the Science Museum’s exhibition will explore the diverse ways people throughout history have sought to understand and harness the Sun. It will open in South Kensington in 2018 to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the discovery of helium by Norman Lockyer and the launch of two solar missions: ESA’s Solar Orbiter and NASA’s Solar Probe Plus.
