Event description
The Margaret Harris Lecture on Religion with Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell

About this Event

Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell is the University’s Chancellor and an astrophysicist by profession. Her discovery of pulsars -rotating neutron stars that appear to pulse as the beam of light they emit can only be seen when it faces the Earth- made together with her supervisor, Antony Hewish, is considered to be one of the greatest astronomical discoveries of the twentieth century.

In this lecture she’ll discuss what astronomers understand about the universe, its future and what it means to hope.

The Margaret Harris Lecture series began in 1965 and was named after the early benefactor of University College Dundee whose estate endowed the first chair of physics and, more recently in 1973, the University’s Chaplaincy Centre.
