Free, Public Lecture: “How to Explore the Universe”, 21st June 2013
Friday, 21st June 2013 @ 17:30 - 21:00 BST
Professor Andy Newsam of the Astrophysics Research Institute, John Moores University, Liverpool, will be delivering his Inaugural Lecture, “How to Explore the Universe” at 5.30pm on 21st June 2013.
The Universe is a dynamic, ever-changing place full of extremes. From Black Holes to asteroids, massive exploding stars to elusive distant planets, every part of the Universe poses its own questions. Recent developments in robotic technology have allowed astronomers to build telescopes designed to help us answer those questions, with LJMU leading the way, but the same technology is also opening up the universe to many outside the professional world, especially in schools.
So, how are astronomers trying to answer those questions? And how can you take part? Come along to find out.
The lecture will be in LJMU’s Art and Design Academy (directions: http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/location/routeplanner.asp?id=92) and is free and open to all, however you will need to book tickets by clicking here: http://professoriallectureseries.eventbrite.com/
