Come and learn from experts from the Centre for Plasma Physics and Astrophysics Research Centre at Queen’s University Belfast about how scientists use laser technology to learn more about our solar system and the wider universe. Lasers Live will demonstrate how we can use lasers to measure the distance to the moon, map out asteroids and even detect phenomena as exotic as gravitational waves.
This exhibition is a unique opportunity for adults and children alike to discover how research by physicists at Queen’s is playing a leading role in developing our understanding of the universe.
