  1. Introduction to quantum physics

    Weekend
    Course Date: Sun 1 Mar 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Learn about the failure of classical mechanics (everyday laws of physics) to explain particle behaviour and the emergence of the quantum revolution. Consider interpretations of these unusual phenomena and the use of quantum physics in current technology.



    Radmila Topalovic holds a degree in Physics with Astrophysics and a PhD in Astrochemistry. She has taught physics, maths and astronomy for almost ten years, and is particularly passionate about quantum physics and astrobiology. She is a former astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

    Science guest lecture Professor Raman Prinja: The Stellar Story, from dusty birth to explosive death

    Evening
    Course Date: Wed 29 Apr 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    A highly illustrated survey lecture on the birth and death of stars.

    Our understanding of the evolution of stars represents one of the great scientific breakthroughs of the past 100 years, bridged by the work of several Nobel laureates. Raman Prinja, Professor of Astrophysics at University College London, will present an overview of our modern understanding of stellar evolution, from the dusty birth of stars, and their nuclear-burning lives, to ultimate demise including supernova detonations, and the bizarre end-states of neutron stars and black holes.



    Raman Prinja is Professor of Astrophysics at University College London (UCL), where he is Head of the Physics and Astronomy Department. He has been awarded the Pol and Christiane Swings research prize and is a multiple winner of the UCL Teaching awards. Beyond research and teaching, Prof Prinja is deeply engaged in outreach activities and is the author of several successful books, including the award winning titles 'Science Crazy', 'Night Sky Watcher' and 'Planetarium'. He is also the winner of the 2019 American Institute of Physics science communication and Royal Society Young People's book prizes.

  4. Physics of life

    Weekend
    Course Date: Sun 10 May 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Find out why physics is the science upon which everything depends. In this course we will use basic physics concepts to understand the biological processes in living organisms, including the relatively new field of quantum biology. Radmila Topalovic holds a degree in Physics with Astrophysics and a PhD in Astrochemistry. She has taught physics, maths and astronomy for almost ten years, and is particularly passionate about quantum physics and astrobiology. Radmila was an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, she is currently Programme Leader for Science and Engineering at Kaplan International College.

  5. The physics of time

    Weekend
    Course Date: Sat 18 Jul 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    We will explore the various different conceptions of time within modern physics. The absolute time of Newtonian mechanics is contrasted with the relativistic time of Einsteinian gravity. The possibility that time is quantized, made up of discrete moments, is seen to emerge in some of the most cutting edge theories of physics, such as loop quantum gravity and string theory. The emergence of time in the big bang, the direction of time, and the possibility of time travel are all explored.

  6. Astrophysics day

    Weekend
    Course Date: Sun 26 Jul 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    A one-day introduction to the science of astrophysics which explores the physics of stars, galaxies, planets and black holes, as well as theoretical topics such as solar system formation.
