Dr. Jessica Barnes, University of Arizona 8th December 2020 Lunar samples are a touchstone to understanding how our nearest neighbour formed and evolved. Advancements in laboratory instrumentation and techniques are providing new and more precise data on lunar materials that are challenging the Apollo-era paradigm of a ‘bone-dry Moon’. In preparation for future lunar missions […]Read more "The Moon’s water: past, current, and future perspectives"

Professor Katherine Blundell OBE https://youtu.be/6dC2Oei8374 Accounts of occasional celestial spectacular events in past centuries have provided crucial information for modern-day astrophysicists. One such example is the so-called Great Eruption of Eta Carinae which was for a time in the mid-19th century the third brightest object in the night sky. Interpretation of the spectacular structure of […]Read more "Cosmic Vision: Witnessing Fireworks"
