I'll fly you to the moon

Professor Lucy Berthoud (Professor of Space Engineering)
Do you think that we should go back to the moon? If so, why should we go? This talk explores current and future developments in lunar exploration including robotic missions, private Moon races and lunar habitats.

Smaller. Better. Faster. Stronger: How your body makes tiny machines to keep you alive

Dr Adrian Bunzel (Research Associate)
Your cells, every 30 trillion of them, need to take up food and handle more than 100,000 different chemicals to grow, proliferate, and form you! Nature has created tiny machines, called enzymes, to handle that complexity and convert the chemicals in your body with exquisite selectivity and unparalleled speed.
By showing how enzymes transform the sugar from your breakfast cereals into energy, I will demonstrate the cool tricks that enzymes apply to speed up chemical reactions. In my research, I am creating new enzymes to exploit that efficiency in non-natural applications. Science is taking inspiration from Nature: We evolve enzymes in the test tube by random mutations, always looking for mutants that are better than the original.
