Outreach event

The outreach event this year will take place on Tuesday 24 May from 2pm - 6pm at the Sabhal Mor Ostaig. The afternoon will involve displays, demos and short outreach talks across plasma applications, fusion, lasers and astrophysics (including a demonstration of the earth-sun plasma system using the Leicester Planeterrella (http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/physics/outreach/planeterrella) ). The event would be most suitable for secondary school students - but will offer fun relief for candidates.

Later that evening, at 8pm, Prof John Brown, Astronomer Royal for Scotland, will give an after-dinner talk entitled "Comets - cosmic bringers of death, life, and new solar/stellar science" to which members of the public would be very welcome.
