Astronomy on Tap Coventry: Sun and Space

February 28 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM GMT

Poster announcing the 2024 February event of Astronomy on Tap Coventry

On February 28th we are hosting the second event of Astronomy on Tap in Coventry!

Where: The Town Crier, Coventry

When: Wednesday 28th of February from 7pm

Come along for astronomy talks and trivia. This month we will have Sergey Belov and James Blake.


Why are we interested in waves on the Sun?

Dr. Sergey Belov, Researcher at the University of Warwick

If waves did not exist, our world would be quiet and dark. Hopefully, waves are present almost everywhere, even at the Sun.  In this talk, we found out what waves travel across our star, how we can see these waves and what the Sun’s secrets they can tell us.


Striving for sustainability in the space domain

Dr. James Blake, Researcher at the University of Warwick

As a society, we rely on satellites for a host of services, from telling us that the weather’s going to be nice, to guiding us back home when that turns out to be wrong! Over time, however, a great deal of mess has started to build up in Earth orbit, putting the satellites and the services they provide at risk. This talk will examine where all the mess came from, why we should all care about tidying it up, and how we might go about doing that.
