Podcast The Meridian: Neutrons at ESS during Future Week
The Meridian - a brand new Lund Observatory podcast premiering this fall!
In this episode of the Meridian Nic and Rebecca - a couple of energetic astronomy Ph.D. students - celebrate Future Week by discussing some of the opportunities and challenges facing ground based astronomy in the near future. One of the concerns they have is that although new and planned mega-sattelite-constellations may improve communication is remote areas they may also pose problems for future astronomical facilities, such as the European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) which under construction on Cerro Armazones in Chile.
But Nic and Rebecca's curiosity about the Universe is not limited to giant telescopes and exploding stars, such as SN1572. It includes even the tiniest particles we have in the Universe. In order to get to know more about what the next generation of researchers can do with the European Spallation Source that is being built here in Lund they have invited Joanna Lewis, a biochemist and science communicator, working in public engagement with science at ESS to the microphone for a chat.
This event is part of Lund University’s Future Week, 18-24 October 2021. View the program (in Swedish) – lu.se/framtidsveckan.
