Why antimatter matters to our Universe?
Dr Patricia Magalhaes (Marie Curie Research Fellow)
All things we can see and touch around us are made by atoms, which are made by smaller particles: protons and neutrons. This is what we call matter. We live in a universe of particle matter. However, at the Big Bang, 14 million years ago, we believe that particles of matter and antimatter were created in the same quantity. A few seconds later, all the antimatter had disappeared. What happened to this antimatter? Where did it go? I invite you to join a journey throughout the understanding of our matter universe, and the importance that the antimatter has to our existence.
Wild weather through space and time
Dr Hannah Wakeford (Lecturer)
Earth has nothing on the universe when it comes to wild weather. Within our own solar system, there are storms so large that our entire planet would be engulfed three times over. The thousands of exoplanets we have uncovered feature not only alien worlds with alien sunsets, but also extreme weather and climates. Join Dr. Wakeford for an adventure into the most extreme weather known to science.
