Are you exhilarated by extraterrestrial life? Stoked by spacesuits? If you’re in Melbourne, Australia at the end of September, be sure to check out these public lectures held alongside the 16th Australian Space Research Conference.
On Saturday 24 September, astrobiologist Jonti Horner from the University of Southern Queensland will talk about exoplanets and life beyond our solar system. It will be held at the Planetarium at Scienceworks in Spotswood and the ticket price of $30-35 includes wine and cheese.
And on Wednesday 28 September, RMIT engineer James Waldie will discuss the ins and outs of the next generation of spacesuits. The lecture is free and starts at 6.30pm at RMIT’s Storey Hall on Swanston St, but be sure to get there early to snare a seat.
