'Oumuamua': Our first interstellar visitor

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 24th Jan 2024

 Free

In 2017, the Solar System was visited by an object named 'Oumuamua’, which came from another star. The unusual properties of this first interstellar visitor led some to suggest it may be an alien spacecraft - but the truth is that its oddness is already teaching us lessons about how solar systems form.

This lecture also considers the prospects of discovering more unusual objects in the Solar System, and what we might do about asteroids that threaten the Earth.

The talk will be given by Professor Chris Lintott.
