A Planet Not Our Own

  • The Royal Institution of Great Britain 21 Albemarle Street London, England, W1S United Kingdom (map)

hosted by The Royal institution

Planets with two suns. Others with seas of lava. Water worlds drowning under global oceans. Join Elizabeth Tasker for a tour of new-found worlds that are more alien than anything in fiction. And then ask if any of them could ever be called home.

Elizabeth Tasker is an astrophysicist and science communicator and an associate professor at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), Institute of Space and Astronautical Sciences (ISAS). Elizabeth's research uses computer models to explore the formation of planets and galaxies.

What to expect?

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk. Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
