Our universe is full of surprises, from ghost remnants of black hole jets to exotic planets around distant stars to Boyajian’s star, the most mysterious star in our galaxy.
Drs Chris Lintott and Laura Trouille will use these unexpected discoveries to explore what we know - and what we don’t - about our dynamic universe. They’ll examine how scientists cope with surprises, reveal what it’s like to think you might have found aliens, and explain how you too might make a remarkable discovery from the comfort of your home. With future telescopes, scanning the sky night after night, set to provide astronomers with a dynamic view of the universe for the first time, there’s never been a better time to look up at the night sky - and be surprised!
Live-streamed from the Adler Planetarium, Chicago into the Immersive Vision Theatre, University of Plymouth.
