Join Royal Society University Research Fellow Lucie Green to walk and talk about the activity and atmosphere of our nearest star, the Sun. Green studies the immense magnetic fields in the Sun’s atmosphere which sporadically erupt into the Solar System. Find out what would happen if these eruptions reached the Earth and how that could drive major space weather events. The walk meets at 07.15 at the Turbine Hall entrance and ends with breakfast in the East Room on Level 6 with spectacular views of London waking up.
Lucie Green is a Royal Society University Research Fellow based at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UCL’s Department of Space and Climate Physics, studying activity in the atmosphere of the Sun. Green regularly gives public talks as well as running her departmental public engagement programme. She sits on the Advisory Board for the Science Museum and is a Governor of the UCL Academy. She recently became Chief Stargazer at the Society for Popular Astronomy.
