Using nature to observe the Universe in X-rays
Northamptonshire Natural History Society
16 Castilian Terrace, Northampton NN1 1LD
Mon Jun 25, 2018
Time: 7 30 pm
Price: Free
A talk by Prof. Paul O'Brien of Leicester University Using nature to observe the Universe in X-rays Nature has solved the problem of how to observe in different ways. Some living creatures use narrow fields of view, while others observe over a very large area. Astronomers also want to vary the way we look to suit the situation. I will describe how we have adapted the vision system of a Lobster to observe the Universe in X-rays, and how the technology is being used in new space missions designed to observe objects from planets to the most distant stars. In particular, I will show how the new Lobster X-ray telescope system will enable us to monitor the violent, evolving Universe.

Time: 7.30 f0r 7.45pm start
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Black holes are one-way doors, cutting matter off from the rest of the universe, but we still understand very little of how their lives. A new generation of fast mutiwavelength detectors is giving us fresh insight into how these objects grow through cycles of accretion and ejection of matter. I will show some of the latest observations of these enigmatic objects from X-rays to the radio band, reviewing what we have learnt and what more remains to be done, and emphasise the important role that dedicated amateur astronomers can play. Dr Gandhi is a member of the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Southampton.

Paler Blue Dots: Technology Developments on ISS for Finding Earth 2.0
William Herschel Society
BRLSI, 16-18 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN
Fri Jul 13, 2018
Time: 7.30 pm
Price: Members & students £2, others £4
The last decade has seen a giant leap in the number of known planets around other stars including hot Jupiters close to their host stars and Earth-like planets. Most of these were found by the Kepler Space Telescope, but now the TESS mission is attempting to find the closest stars with planetary systems. These data will be used by the James Webb Space Telescope to view planets with the hope of finding out something about their atmospheres. Up to now imaging these planets has been incredibly difficult but we have carried out observations in Florida and on the Canary Islands, and have recently completed an ISS mission to demonstrate a key technology that should massively simplify this. This lecture by Dr Daniel Batcheldor of the Florida Institute of Technology will cover our current understanding of exoplanets, the techniques used to detect them, and the status of our ISS mission.
