Beyond Earth: In Search of Life

Dr Lewis Darnell on how physics shapes our hunt for alien life

Thursday 8th October 2015

For World Space Week 2015, the Institute of Physics is luring Dr Lewis Dartnell, a UK Space Agency Research Fellow, to a tunnel in the depths of King’s Cross to explain how physics is shaping our hunt for extra-terrestrial life.

Venture below ground with us to find out how astronauts searching for life on Mars would have to live in order to survive on the planet. We will also be delving into the latest research in alien exploration – from the moons that might harbour new beings to robotic missions crammed with cutting-edge tech.

The talk kicks off at 6.30pm, and doors open at 6pm.

This event is free and open to anyone age 16 and up. You need no scientific knowledge to enjoy the lecture. To guarantee your place, online registration is recommended.
