Description

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel through space? Imagine space-hopping from a stellar nursery to a galaxy far far away!

The Macquarie University Astronomical Observatory is back with episode three of Space Travels - a gateway to explore our magnificent Universe.

MQ Space Travels is our brand new LiveStreaming Series intertwining astronomy and astrophysics with state-of-the-art technology and story-telling.

For Episode 3, we bring to you "All Things Planets" with astronomer and science communicator Dr. Ángel R. López-Sánchez @El_Lobo_Rayado, from Australian Astronomical Optics (MQ-AAO) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Macquarie University, and hosted by our very own Dr. Devika Kamath @DrDevikaKamath.

Our Universe is full of planetary systems. Nevertheless, our Solar System is unique since it is the only one known, so far, to host “life” as we know it. Come join us for an evening of “All Things Planets”, as we explore our marvellous Solar System - from the craters and seas on our Moon, to the cocktail of gases in the rings of Saturn, to the storms brewing up in Jupiter, and much more.

Our livestream broadcast will be coming to you from the Association for Astronomy Facebook page at 7pm AEST on Friday 17 September 2021.
