Life in the Universe

Posted 17/01/2013

You are invited to a day of free talks and discussions on the subject of ‘the possibilities and science of ET life and the search for it’. Eminent expert speakers include Sir Roger Penrose, Dr Chris Lintott (of Sky at Night) and Professor John C Brown FRSE, Astronomer Royal for Scotland. The day is designed for the general public (ages 8 and up) and is unticketed, but space is limited so come early to avoid disappointment.

Location: Edinburgh University (EUSA) Debating Hall, Bristo Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9AJ

Date & time: Saturday 9 March 2013,  9.30 am until 5 pm.(Talks start at 10am but early arrivals will get a chance of some sunspot observing and meteorite viewing).

AND, in the same venue that evening:

The 'Out of this World' Ceilidh (Ticketed – cost £12.50 – for ages 18 & over).

The ceilidh will provide opportunity to socialise with the speakers, attendees and the general ceilidh crowd – and to dance to Scotland’s renowned ceilidh band The Occasionals. Weather permitting, let balcony stargazing take your breath away between dances.

More details, including programme and link to ceilidh ticket purchase are available here.
