Quantum world to space travel – something for everyone to enjoy in virtual Physics lectures

Monday 8 February 2021

The first of many interesting virtual physics lectures will take place tomorrow, starting a whole month of events that have been recommended by the Physics faculty.

A range of organisations, including the Institute of Physics, are hosting these lectures, which start tomorrow – Tuesday, February 9th – and will explore many different topics, ranging from the universe, modern physics and extra-terrestrial geology.

Amy Smiter, Head of Physics, said: “With many lectures turning to online streaming, there is no better time than now to treat yourself and watch one (or all!) of the many Physics lectures that organisations are offering.

“There are some great lectures and events coming up this month and we have selected just a few of the highlights that you might be interested in. From the quantum world to space travel, there really is something for everyone this month. Sign up for the lectures on the links provided, sit back and enjoy!”

The first lecture on Tuesday, is entitled ‘Ripples from the Dark Side of the Universe’ and his hosted by Prof Sir James Hough, Emeritus Kelvin Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. The talk begins at 5pm. You can view the lecture here https://isaacphysics.org/pages/cpc_lectures#february

On Wednesday the lecture is entitled ‘Animating Physics’ which also takes place at 5pm, and can be found here https://events.iop.org/animating-physics
