"Weird New Worlds"
With literally thousands of exoplanet candidates discovered to date, we now know of a few relatively Earthlike worlds - and many, many more planets very different from those in our own solar system! Find out what we know already about these worlds and what we will be learning in the next decades as new and more advanced telescopes come online. Dr Beth Biller will also discuss the prospects for getting the first weather reports from extrasolar planets and show the first weather maps made for brown dwarfs - objects a bit bigger than planets but smaller than stars.
Glasgow Science Centre is proud to host the David Elder Lectures in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Department of Physics.
About the Planetarium
The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
