Beyond Earth: From alien life to the evolution of the entire Universe

Featuring research highlights from the Astronomy Unit. This includes the discovery of exoplanets, understanding how they form and the characteristics that life upon them may have. It also includes work on "space weather”, where plasma ejected from the sun can have huge implications for satellites and other technology on the Earth. On the biggest scales it also includes the evolution and workings of the Universe as a whole, including the extremes of our understanding of gravity in exotic systems like black holes. 

What we are showing at the event: The stand will highlight our discoveries in astronomy, if weather permits, this will include a live feed from our remotely operated telescope.
