Talking Science with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

8th March 2024, 1:30 – 7:00 pm

As part of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory’s Talking Science programme, we have a fantastic series of talks lined up for you and we do hope you’ll be able to join us for them! The talks cover everything from the science of the incredibly small to the mysteries of dark matter.

These events will run as hybrid events so you are able to attend either:

  • in person, in our Lecture Theatre at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, or
  • online via Zoom webinar

Upcoming talks include:

Searching for water on the Moon – Friday 8 March (13:30 and 19:00) by Dr Katherine Shirley, University of Oxford (10+)

The search for water across the Solar System has long driven space science, but what about on our nearest neighbour? In this talk we will explore why we are interested in water in the Solar System and how our understanding of water on the Moon has changed over time. We will also talk about how researchers at Oxford are working to build space instruments that will tell us more about lunar water in upcoming missions.

Tickets for online talks are available up until the talk starts. Tickets for in-person events close the night before each event: if you would like to book an in-person last-minute place, please email us at visitral@stfc.ac.uk.
