Public Science Lecture - The cosmic web & its inhabitants


Part of the 'Science Public Lecture Series' hosted by the University of Nottingham's Physics and Astronomy Department.

"The cosmic web & its inhabitants" by Caterina Lani

ABSTRACT:
When studying the Universe on large-scales, it is apparent that galaxies are not randomly distributed. They instead  form a well defined structure known as the Cosmic Web. This structure consists of densely populated regions connected to each other by filaments, and large empty regions known as voids. The formation, evolution and properties of galaxies are related to where they reside in the Cosmic Web, i.e. the environment. In this talk I will discuss the different environments, as well as how dark matter shapes the cosmic web and its inhabitants.

6-7pm

B1, Physics Building, University Park, Nottingham (Near the QMC hospital)

No admission charge or booking required. Free onsite parking.

We will meet at 5.45 pm in the foyer. Following the lecture we can head to a nearby pub.

    Interesting yet simple talk on galaxies and dark matter. I thought the speaker did really well for her first public talk. Great social in the bar afterwards. Met some great new people and am really pleased some of you will be coming again :)

    My apologies for any confusion I caused as I thought I had cancelled my place on this meetup (until some "good to see you" messages came through today). I attended the lecture with some others. It was good to see you all as always too anyway :)

    it would be useful to know which entrance to use.

    June 19, 2013

    • Joanne

      There are 3 entrances to University Park at the moment, the east being closed for tram works. The entrance nearest to the building is the north entrance on derby road, just off the island. If you mean entrance to the building, both entrances come straight onto the foyer

    Can someone tell me where to park as I can't open the map on my pc. Do we have to pay for parking? Jinny

    • Joanne

      Parking is free and there is plenty of it, either side of the Physics building.
