The star of Bethlehem – an astronomer’s view by Barry Kellett.
Can astronomy (the study of stars), when it is combined with history,
help us to work out when Jesus was born and what the Star of
Bethlehem could have been? Can astronomy also help to work out the
EXACT date for the Crucifixion and also how old Jesus would have been
when he died? You will have to come to the lecture to find out the
answers to these (and other) questions!

Chemistry & Computers: Simulating the Machines of Life by William Glass, University of Oxford.

Proteins are responsible for the dynamics and responses of a cell
that underpin many processes of life. These molecular machines are
embedded in a thin membrane surrounding all cells that is composed
of a complex mixture of molecules called lipids. To investigate such
systems, I use computers to simulate how these proteins behave and
interact with each other. Using high-performance computer clusters to
simulate systems in both atomistic and coarse-grained detail we can
answer questions that aren’t accessible in a typical laboratory.
So, move from the lab bench to the computer desk and discover where
the fields of physics, chemistry and biology meet
