From the massive to the miniscule, the environment, world, and galaxy we live in impact our lives from birth until death. In this event from the University of Warwick we take you from the massive to the miniscule in 90 minutes. Beginning with the search for other Earth-type planets we'll talk you through how new planets are discovered using the doppler effect, then we'll look at what UV light is and how we can use it, and finish with how biology influences weather and climate through its interaction with water and ice.

Searching through the stars: finding Earth 2.0

Heather Cegla (Assistant Professor in Physics)
Laura Millson (Post-graduate Student in Physics, University of Warwick)
Lauren Doyle (Researcher in Physics, University of Warwick)
Marina Lafarga Margo (Researcher in Physics, University of Warwick)
Are we alone in the Universe? In this session we will use interactive demonstrations to explain the two most prolific methods of discovering worlds outside our Solar System.

Ultraviolet light: from CERN to the sewers

Gavin Bell (Reader in Physics, University of Warwick)
What is ultraviolet light, what does it do, and how can we "see" it? And what is the connection between detectors used in particle physics experiments at CERN... and seagull poo?

Why does water freeze?

Nina Kinney (Post-graduate Student in Chemistry, University of Warwick)
The freezing of water into ice is possibly the most familiar phase transition in everyday experience and plays a key role in weather and climate. This talk will explore how and why water freezes and why this matters in our environment.
