The miniature mysteries of light

Professor Charles Adams (Professor of Physics)
Oddly, given that light is all around, we are still learning new things. By learning how to control photons - the miniscule particles of light - we are getting closer to the quantum world, that remains full of mystery and the unexpected.
Back in sixties, Richard Feynman said, "Don't keep saying to yourself 'but how can it be like that?'... Nobody knows how it can be like that."
Still nobody knows, but we are trying to find out.

Galaxies: Empires of the Stars

Finn Burridge (Science Communicator, Kielder Observatory)
From atoms to galaxies the universe performs it's vast, unfathomably complex yet astonishingly beautiful cosmic dance. From the briefest pirouettes between subatomic particles but a fraction of a second long, to chorus lines of colliding galaxies who's routines have billions of years yet to come, each actor plays, each affecting the others, all choreographed by the laws of reality itself. Tonight, we dive into the largest structures of the universe: galaxies, and reveal how these empires of stars form, live and die, and how their light has revealed some of the greatest truths of our universe.
