Cambridge University Astronomical Society invite you to join us for this year’s main event. Professor Sir Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, Master of Trinity College and President of the Royal Society will be giving us an exciting overview of the future of Astronomy as he sees it.

As author of more than 500 research papers and winner of numerous prizes for his work, Professor Rees is one of the most well known Astronomers in the UK. He has made important contributions to the origin of the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation, as well as to galaxy clustering and formation. His studies of the distribution of quasars helped disprove steady state theory. He was also one of the first to propose that enormous black holes power quasars._

With so many new unknowns being introduced to Astronomy over the past few years, such as dark matter, dark energy and theories for the beginning of the universe, the future of Astronomy looks to be an exciting one. Be the first to hear predictions from one of the most influential Astronomers of our time.

We know this talk will be popular so we’ve hired out a bigger lecture theatre. In addition, it is going to be FREE for everyone! We look forward to seeing you there.

This talk is part of the Cambridge University Astronomical Society (CUAS) series.
