AoT Groningen returns!

November 8, 2023 @ 8:30 PM - 11:00 PM CET


We’re back! AoT Groningen is happy to announce our return Wednesday 8 November!
The speaker this month is the fantastic Joe Callingham (ASTRON) talking about Life around a radio star.
Astronomers can now easily identify planets outside our Solar System. However, it remains a mystery if such planets can host life. I will reveal how radio waves emitted from exoplanets can help us understand if life could exist around the most common stars in the Galaxy.

Join us live at The Cabin (Gedempte Zuiderdiep 67, 9711 HC) at 20:30.
Entry is free and there are no tickets required.
