You are welcome to attend the many seminars and talks held at the School, including the fortnightly colloquia.
- It's been an exciting and enjoyable year for the Astronomical Society with a growing portfolio of events and projects. AstroSoc President Paul Carter summarises 2014.
- Take a hard look at the painful process of de-carbonising the UK's electricity supply, and it's clear that the options on the table are not great.
- Much has been made of the discovery of the Higgs boson – the elementary particle pivotal to the Standard Model of physics – and rightly so. Yet the so-called 'God particle', hypothesised for so long and finally confirmed in 2012, is responsible for only one per cent of the mass of the visible universe. The other 99 per cent is due to the Strong Force.Professor David Evans, School of Physics and Astronomy, talks about his work at the Large Hadron Collider.
There are many ways you can get involved in the School, your relationship with us doesn't end with graduation.
