Event description

Description

This lecture will follow St Peter's School's annual Stargazing Live event, held at St Olave's School from 5:30pm. Stargazing Live is free to attend and does not require a ticket.

The lecture will begin at 7pm in the Memorial Hall at St Peter's School - you will require a free ticket for admission to this lecture.

The talk, from Professor Carolin Crawford, University of Cambridge, is about interstellar space - not truly a vacuum devoid of matter, but inhabited by vast thin clouds of gas and dust that appear as glorious and complex structures. We showcase some of the most spectacular images of these ‘nebulae’, including many taken with the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes. We shall look at them with new eyes, dissecting the pictures and learning how to ‘read’ what they tell us about the turbulent story of the birth and death of stars. Indeed, revealing the science behind the beauty.

This lecture is now sold out, but please do come along and let us know if you would be interested in attending, as seats may become available shortly before the lecture begins. If you already have a ticket, please note that due to the level of interest in this event, if you are not in your seat by 6.55pm, your ticket may be made available to those who are waiting.

Please either print off your ticket or display it to us on your smartphone or tablet on the evening.
