Event description

Description

This is the first of 5 lectures by Dr. Adrian Jannetta which will cover everything in the universe! From the Sun and planets to exoplanets orbiting other stars and supernovae exploding in distant galaxies and supermassive black holes…you’ll never look at the night sky the same way again! This course, which is aimed at beginners to astronomy, will be a mix of practical advice and background theory. If you can't attend all the lectures, you can book individual lectures, which are listed separately, for £7.

3RD FEB: PART 1 --- EXOPLANETS

This session will cover the techniques used by astronomers to discover planets around other stars. We’ll cover the following points:

  • Methods for discovering extrasolar planets.

  • How many planets in the Milky Way?

  • A brief history of SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence).

  • Resolving Fermi’s paradox: Where are the aliens?
