Friday, 18th October 2019 @ 19:00 - 21:00 BST
The October 2019 (William Lassell Memorial Lecture) monthly meeting of Liverpool Astronomical Society for the 2019 – 2020 (138th) session will be held on Friday, October 18th from 19:00 to 21:00.
Our guest speaker this month is Ms. Melanie Davies from Creative Space – a Community Interest Company delivering astronomy outreach and public engagement to all ages and abilities. From mobile planetarium shows to free astronomy events, they’ve got space covered in a fun and creative way, and her lecture is entitled:
“Titan: A candidate for evolution?”
Saturn’s moon, Titan, is a strange and mysterious world; it may even have the right ingredients for life.
The talk gives an overview of this Earth-like world and the space missions that have paid it a visit. This extraordinary moon is discussed in detail in this captivating presentation, which features scientific findings, audio and visual recordings from the Huygens Lander, and ideas about the existence of Titanites. The presentation is full of exceptional images – both from orbit and on the surface – and is delivered in easy-to-understand language, explaining the more difficult concepts in layman’s terms.
The European Space Agency, along with NASA, have played an important role in investigative science at Titan. Many discoveries have been made, but many mysteries remain to be solved. The talk also outlines mission proposals for the future.
