Here's a message from Francisco Diego about this FREE event:

Dear all,

Once more, it is time for Your Universe Festival, now part of the First London Science Festival.

On Thursday 20th at 16:30 we have CAPTAIN, WE DETECT A GHOST UNIVERSE EVERYWHERE! a lecture by myself about the mysterious 96% of the universe which composition still eludes scientists. This will follow a couple of lectures about the Large Hadron Collider by two of its most prominent scientists.

On Friday 21st at 16:30, we have a lecture on possible detection of life on hundreds of extra solar planets by Prof Jonathan Tennyson, followed by a lecture about the last flight of the space shuttle by Dr Kevin Fong.

Please see details at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/youruniverse/lectures

The main attractions will be the magic planet, play god, real telescopes, the magic of the rainbow, the lives of stars... in addition, over the weekend: Urban Sputnik, an art installation about Red Shift and the negative curvature of the Universe and finally, a super installation with a fully operational prototype of ExoMars, the European robotic Mars mission to be launched in this decade.
