Location: Kensington Conference & Events Centre
European AstroFest will bring together the professional and amateur astronomy communities on 8th & 9th February at London's Kensington Conference Centre. The show's 20th year will be the biggest and best yet! Why? Because not one, but two, STS academics will be giving talks.
Professor Steve Miller will be speaking about The Molecule that Made the Universe
"How did the three simple chemical elements that were present immediately after the Big Bang – hydrogen, helium and lithium – grow into the 100-plus elements that exist today? And how did a few primitive molecules develop into the billions of incredibly complex living species?"
STS Honorary Fellow Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock will ask Do We Need The Moon?
"The Moon is such a familiar presence in the sky that most of us take it for granted. This talk will show the Moon in a new light by exploring some of its more unexpected aspects. Besides orchestrating the tides, it dictates the length of a day, the rhythm of the seasons and the very stability of our planet."
