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

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.
