Extreme Environments: From Space to People

14.05.21 @ 13:00

A single day workshop connecting researchers and experts across a range of disciplines with industry representatives. The theme is extreme environments: from space to people. The day will feature presentations on the extreme environments of stars, the variation and potential climates of planets, alongside work on the presence of life within them, before connecting to Earth through the impact of space weather, accessing space, human perceptions and visualisations of extreme environments, and the impact of paradigm shifting results on society. There will also be an opportunity to discuss some of these themes.
