Dr Peter Grindrod

One of the most fundamental questions that we can ask is whether we are alone in the universe. This talk will make the case that the best chance of finding life remains with Mars, despite ongoing exploration of our own Solar System and recent discoveries of exoplanets. In essence, studies of water and the habitability of Mars will drive and constrain the search for life in the coming decade and beyond. There is compelling evidence that the atmosphere and climate…

Will Gater

Across our human lifetimes, the night sky can often feel like something of a constant.

We live in a whirl of celestial activity alive with the movement…
