Every year, our staff and students typically interact directly with almost 20,000 members of the public of all ages, through various events including public talks, science festivals and family events. We cover many aspects of astrophysics and solar system science, missions, careers, and space history and aim to show the diversity of people and activities that make up our community.
Members of our department give talks that enable audiences to engage with the very latest space science and engineering.
We view space science and engineering as part of our wider culture and have collaborated with many artists over the years to co-create art-science activities.
Leading and being part of exhibitions enables our scientists and engineers to directly engage with thousands of member of the general public, school students and teachers, and family audiences.
Our articles have appeared in print media such as the BBC’s Sky at Night Magazine, Astronomy Now and Wired, as well as appearing as online articles in, for example, The Conversation.

We are always very happy to consider requests for engagement activities. For queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We do consider every email enquiry, and although we endeavour to accommodate as many requests as our staff members' and students' availability makes possible, we are sorry that it is not possible to respond positively to every request. Please note that MSSL is a working laboratory so it is unfortunately very unusual for us to be able to accommodate visits by groups or individuals.
