Unveiling the hidden cosmos

13 September 2022 - 11:00

Queen's Building, Lecture Theatre 1.10, De Montfort University

Event duration: 60 minutes 


With the rise of space travel, exploration and tourism, the Universe beyond planet Earth is starting to feel increasingly accessible and integrated into our lives. 

By sharing some of the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope, Piyal Samara-Ratna from Space Park Leicester will use his Physics and Astronomy Section Presidential Address to highlight some of the major projects that are bringing space closer to home. 

He will take us beyond finding life on Mars and share how our understanding and the technology in space is helping with global issues, like climate change and addressing poverty.
