Astronomy on Tap Leiden: The best parking spots on the Moon

April 29 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT

Our next event will take place on Monday 29 April at Golden Tulip Hotel at 20:00 CET!

Join us for a night of astronomy with two fantastic talks from Csilla Orgel and Sarah Boazman, who will tell us about lunar missions and the best sites for the landing of next ESA and NASA missions.

As always, there will be fun games where you could win cool science prizes!

Csilla Orgel: Searching for accessible landing sites with possible water-ice deposits for future robotic exploration missions

Csilla is a planetary geologist and remote sensing expert. She joined HE Space as an Exploration Science and Research Support Scientist at ESTEC. She is originally from Hungary, where she conducted her Bachelor’s in Earth Sciences in Budapest and obtained her Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in Planetary and Geological Sciences at Freie Universität Berlin in Germany. Csilla worked as a Research Fellow on planetary surface exploration missions (ExoMars Rosalind Franklin Rover, Mars Sample Return, PROSPECT) to the Moon and Mars at ESA ESTEC.

Sarah Boazman: Goldilocks landing site: Not too dark, and not too warm, but just right

Sarah is a research fellow at ESA ESTEC, whose research focusses on surface analysis of planetary bodies, currently working on landing site assessment of the lunar south pole. Prior to her current role, she completed her PhD jointly studying at the Natural History London and the University college London in the UK. Her PhD research investigated the migration rate of sand dunes across Mars and how the environment, particularly topography, effected the migration rate.

Logistical information: We start at 20:00 sharp, so please arrive earlier to enter the bar, save a seat, and grab a drink. We will be uploading a recording of the talks on our YouTube channel after the event.

Join us for an evening of astronomy and fun games where you could win cool science prizes!
