Event description

Description

Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell has made many exceptional contributions to physics. She is best known for the discovery of massive rotating neutron stars that appear to pulse regularly and so became known as pulsars.

She has become a role model for young students and female scientists throughout the world and was appointed a CBE for services to astronomy in 1999. Her story was featured in BBC Four’s Beautiful Minds, and BBC Two’s Horizon documented her discovery of pulsars.

In this talk Dame Jocelyn will talk about pulsars and her other great contributions to astrophysics.

The lecture is being held as part of Hull Science Festival - visit the website for details of more shows and workshops and to book tickets.
