Jodrell Bank is proud to be relaunching the Lovell Lecture series in our Wolfson Auditorium this Autumn/Winter. We will be hosting three consecutive evening lectures and are delighted to welcome leading astrophysicists to Jodrell Bank.
LECTURE 2: How to be Surprised by the Universe
From mysterious radio signals to spectacular supernovae, the Universe keeps finding new ways to astonish us. Chris Lintott (Sky at Night, University of Oxford) explains why we should keep our eyes peeled for the unusual, and what to do when you think you’ve found an alien civilisation.
Chris Lintott is a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford, where he runs the Zooniverse citizen science project and things about everything from interstellar objects to galaxies. He is best known as the co-presenter of the BBC’s long-running Sky at Night program, and an author whose work has appeared in the Times and London Review of Books.
