Come to UCL and celebrate the International Year of Astronomy 2009:

* Learn about how UCL scientists are contributing to the advancement of our knowledge of the Universe, from extra-solar planets to the mystery behind dark energy.
* Visit Stars r'us, an interactive exhibit to show how stars are born, live and die.
* Admire the magic planet, a spherical projection able to reproduce any planet or star with all its motions, colours and landscapes.
* Play God by building the Universe from the big bang to our days, along our 14 metre long time line.
* Talk to our young scientists who are studying the newly discovered planets around distant stars.
* Hold in your hands rocks older than our own planet.
* Build a scale model of the solar system.
* Attend our series of popular lectures which will be running everyday in the majestic Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre.
* Use some of our telescopes to look at the sun and the planet venus (weather permitting).
* Find out about our certificate in astronomy, an evening course for the non-specialist.

All events are free of charge on a first come first served basis.

Check the programme on the web site carefully - the lectures on each day are different so if you want to hear them all you have to attend for all 4 days.

Also some of the displays are only on one of the 4 days.
