Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)

If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.

Talk: The science of Armageddon

Tuesday, 25th March 2014 @ 18:00 - 19:30 GMT


The Earth has a long and violent history of collisions with extraterrestrial bodies such as asteroids and comets. Massively more destructive than a global nuclear war, this is the hazard that is most likely to precipitate the end of civilisation as we know it, but It is also the only major natural hazard that can be predicted and prevented.

Here, Jay will discuss the nature and extent of the Near Earth Object (NEO) hazard and how it can be dealt with.

Building 207 on University Plan at http://www.liv.ac.uk/files/docs/maps/liverpool-university-campus-map.pdf

Talk starts at 6.30 p.m. with tea and coffee available from 6pm.
