Reaching for the Stars

19th January 2023

On Tuesday 17 January, students from UTC Portsmouth, one of our partner secondary schools, joined members of AstroSoc (our pupil-led astronomy club) for an evening of astrophysics. They viewed Mars and Jupiter through the telescope in the observatory and did some virtual stargazing identifying planets, satellites and constellations using Stellarium online planetarium.

This was followed by a talk on Gravitational Waves and Gamma Rays from Dr. Martin Pohl, Head of Theoretical Physics at DESY, the fundamental physics research centre.
