Event details

Lifelong Learning lecture

Since the dawn of humankind the light from the night sky has enthralled and excited us. Over time we’ve developed more powerful tools which have allowed us to observe the universe in ever greater detail. Still the universe continues to inspire and enthral us. Whilst these images are beautiful in most cases they are not the final aim of these observations. Instead they are a happy, unintended consequence of the observations. 

In this lecture we will look at the science behind some of these observations.
