Is the glass half-full or half-empty with Sunlight? Is the sun an endless source of energy? What do you know about the laws of nature and the energy process? Join our event dedicated to exploring these topics and finding a link to our planet Earth. Our marvelous speakers will present their work enjoying a pint with you!

Sustainability for the Deep Future

Professor Colin McInnes (Professor of Engineering Science)
Through an understanding of the laws of nature through Science, and their application through Engineering, our technologies now use energy to process matter often on vast scales. This talk will project human technologies into the deep future and imagine their impact on both humans and planet Earth itself.

The Real Daylight Savings

Dr. Onur Celik (Research Associate)
The Sun is virtually an endless source of energy. But we can only use it for energy generation during the daylight hours. What if we had a reflector in orbit to supply additional sunlight locally to solar power plants, to extend those hours?

Half a Glass of Sunshine

Join Dr. Luke Daly to explore how up to half of the water on Earth may have come from the sun's solar wind shining on tiny dust grains in space.
