A state of the Universe report - PROF CHRIS LINTOTT
We are very excited that Professor Chris Lintott will be giving us a talk.

"Our view of the Universe is changing, with new discoveries coming thick and fast, from possible signs of life in the clouds of Venus to mysterious explosions in the distant Universe. In this talk, astronomer Chris Lintott will draw on the latest discoveries and images of the Universe, bringing updates from the frontiers cosmology, the discovery of thousands of planets in other solar systems and from the search for life. With the pace of discovery set to increase even more rapidly in the decade to come, thanks to new telescopes and missions, this is the perfect time to check in on our understanding of the cosmos." This talk is (free) ticketed, members, please check your email for details
