Description

We are delighted to welcome Lucie Green to Sutton for our BIG BANG@Sutton Festival Week to present 'The Martian' (12A) starring Matt Damon at Empire Cinemas.

Lucie Green is a British science communicator and solar researcher. Since 2005 Green has been a Royal Society University Research Fellow at Mullard Space Science Laboratory of the University College London, you may recognise her from here television appearances on Stargazing live and The Sky at Night.

Lucie will be presenting a pre screening talk on 'Exlploring Mars'. The talk will be at 6.30pm, Doors open at 6.15pm, screening of The Martian is at 7pm. Afterward Lucie will be available to sign her book '15 Million Degrees: A Journey to the Centre of the Sun, which will also be available to purchase for £10.00 on the night.

As soon as humankind developed the technology needed to venture into space, Mars became a desired destination. Every major space agency has tried to send spacecraft there, with varying levels of success. The six-month journey, Mars’ thin atmosphere and the freezing temperatures all present a huge challenge to the exploration of the Red Planet. But despite these difficulties, we have learnt that this planet once supported liquid water and was probably a very different planet in the past than it is today. This talk will look at the challenges of robotic and human exploration of Mars, and whether we will ever achieve the ultimate goal of having humans living and working on Mars.
