The far side of the moon: is it just aliens?

With Dr Julian Onions, Programmer and Astrophysicist, Faculty of Science.

The Moon is a shy body, it only ever shows one sides of itself to the Earth. Before the space age, we had no idea what was on the far side of the Moon. This has led to a number of conspiracy theories that it is a haven for aliens. In this talk, we’ll chart the progress of how we got to see what was on the far side of the Moon, and what we found there. Tin foil hats are optional!

This event will take place 6-7pm on Thursday 16 May in B1 Lecture Theatre, Physics Building, University Park.

There is no admission charge and no need to book in advance.
