Pint Of Science: To Infinity And Beyond – George IV

13 May @ 7:30 pm9:30 pm BST

Be blasted into outer space, exploring what life would be like on Mars and what on Earth is going on on Jupiter’s moons. Two incredible talks take place to welcome in the first day of the Pint of Science festival at The George IV.

Exploring Giant Planet Magnetospheres – talk led by Professor Nicholas Achilleos (Professor of Planetary Physics & Director of UCL’s Centre for Planetary Sciences.)

For the last 50 years or so, several robotic space missions have visited the gas giant worlds, Jupiter and Saturn. The data from these spacecraft have advanced our knowledge of the magnetic fields surrounding these worlds, or their magnetospheres. Closer examination of the data has also highlighted important differences between Jupiter and Saturn. In this talk, Professor Nicholas Achilleos will be looking at some of the important discoveries related to the exploration of the magnetospheres of these huge planets, and briefly look at some of the related science goals of the JUICE (JUpiter ICy Moon Explorer) mission, presently en-route to Jupiter and its three biggest moons.

Looking for life on Mars – talk led by Professor Andrew Coats (Professor of Physics, UCL Department of Space & Climate Physics)

See George IV website for updates, more information will be coming soon about Andrew’s amazing talk.
