Four centuries have passed since Kepler discovered the three laws of planetary motion that now bear his name. But how do the elliptical orbits follow from the inverse-square law? How did Newton prove that equal areas are swept out in equal time intervals? Is it really true that the square of a planet’s orbital period…
The University of Leeds welcomes Dr Gaitee Hussain, ESA’s Head of Science Division, for our annual Bolton Lecture in Astrophysics. Our solar system is a nice place to live thanks to our Sun, which provides a friendly environment. But what about other stars, would we want to live around them? Register at Eventbrite.  This talk…
Materials Science and Engineering is an exciting,dynamic field of science that effects our daily life, such as better mobile phone batteries and lighter, stronger materials for sports equipment. The Discover Materials Open Day is aimed at 16-18 year olds and will showcase the field, the wonderful career opportunities that a Materials Science and Engineering degree…
