Picture of the Week
Discovering the physics and chemistry of the cosmos is different to carrying out experiments in the lab. In the lab, samples can be tested, experiments can be repeated, and if anything looks odd, you can always look from another angle to see if it's just a trick of perspective.

Communicate your research
Why engage with the public?
Because it is good for you, and it is good for the public.
In line with UCL's Public Engagement Policy, MAPS faculty is committed to encouraging all members of the faculty, from undergraduates to professors, to participate in outreach and engagement activities.
Public engagement in all its forms is considered in cases for promotion alongside enabling, research, and teaching. The value of public engagement is increasingly recognised by funding bodies and in the structures of British science, including the REF – continued public funding of research is dependent on the public having a degree of ownership of the fruits of research.
In the same way as research and teaching are mutually reinforcing activities, so public engagement should be integral to the activities of UCL members.
