Humans will soon make their first trip to Mars. How will we get there? What challenges will we have to overcome and what spectacular sights await the successful? In a talk packed full of stunning visuals and the latest scientific thinking, astronomy author Colin Stuart will take you on a journey to the Red Planet to witness the majesty of a Martian sunset.
Colin Stuart is a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and has talked about the wonders of the universe on Sky News, BBC News and BBC Radio 5 Live. He has been quoted in national newspapers including The Daily Telegraph and The Observer.
In recognition of his efforts to popularize astronomy, the asteroid (15347) Colinstuart is named after him and in 2014 he was awarded runner-up in the European Astronomy Journalism Prize.
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 into the gallery.
