Event description
Join space scientist Kate Lancaster to explore the amazing world of high energy lasers

About this event

When lasers were invented over half a century ago they were dismissed as a “solution looking for a problem”. Since then lasers have come to revolutionise our lives through their practical applications such as data transport and CD/ DVD players, and as a tool for industry and science.

Today, Scientists are using them to attempt to recreate fusion, the energy source of the sun, to create a clean and inexhaustible supply of energy for the future. Physicist Kate Lancaster will lead you on a journey through this extreme world, from the basics of how lasers work to ultra-intense giant lasers which might provide clean energy for everyone.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 13+

Please note, this livestream is aimed at families and young people, and so is starting at an earlier time of 6.00pm.
