From the Moon to the Distant Universe - recent developments in astronomy

Starting Wednesday 16 January, 7.00 – 9.00pm

Course tutor: Fred Stevenson
Course length: 7 sessions
Course structure: mainly indoor sessions with at least 1 field trip

In this course, we will discuss the many exciting discoveries currently being made thanks to a new generation of huge telescopes based around the world and from spacecraft now visiting various asteroids and planets in our solar system. They give us a unique insight into our origins and place in the universe. The course will also contain at least one observational session to observe the night sky and hopefully see some of the objects that we talk about during the course.

This course will be held in the Percy Building on Newcastle University Campus. For a map of Newcastle University Campus, please click here.
