I am gutted that I will be on holiday when this lecture is held at Imperial College, London on 17 April 2012 from 18:30-20:00.

THE SENSUAL UNIVERSE: Astrophysics for the five senses

A new public lecture series from the Astrophysics group.

Powerful telescopes and sophisticated space missions have hugely enhanced our capability to pierce into the deepest recesses of the Universe: we can now probe the very limits of the visible cosmos.

But why should we limit our explorations to what we can see?
By deploying all of our five senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste) we can learn so much more about the fascinating Universe in which we live.

Join us for an incredible voyage through astrophysics and cosmology that will call upon all of your senses with the first lecture in the new series.
