Free online lecture by Dr Suzie Imber at the Royal Society. Dr Suzanne Imber (Department of Physics and Astronomy, Leicester University) will be giving her Rosalind Franklin Prize Lecture to the Royal Society on 9 February on “Space weather and implications for life on other worlds”.
This public lecture will be followed by a live, virtual Q&A and is free to register to attend.
Dr Imber will discuss the role of space weather on planetary dynamics, with particular reference to the Earth and Mercury, extending to Venus, Mars and the giant planets. In particular Dr Imber will consider how our understanding of space weather has changed over recent years, look forward to some exciting missions being planned for the next few decades, and discuss the extent to which we can apply our current knowledge to the study of the habitability of extra-solar planets.
