PREPARING FOR SPACE SETTLEMENTS USING MICROBES
The Fourth George Fraser Memorial Lecture
Moray’s astronomy club SIGMA host a visit from Prof. Charles Cockell of the University of Edinburgh and welcome you to join them and hear how microbes can help us in space. “On Earth, we use them to make yogurt, drugs and to mine metals,” he says. “As we head out into the stars, microbes will come with us as our allies.”
The biennial Memorial Lecture is given in honour of Prof. George Fraser (1955-2014), who was born and brought up in Burghead in Moray, and went on to become Professor of Detector Physics and Director of the Space Research Centre of the University of Leicester and an internationally-renowned figure in space research.
This free event is hosted in SIGMA’s YouTube channel.
The talk will be followed at around 8.30 pm by Space News from Stuart Brooks, and a look by Mick O’Donnell at what you can see in the northern night sky for this coming month.
If you enjoy the meeting and want to join SIGMA, you will be able to get their monthly newsletter and night skies guide.
