ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Solarsphere are so excited to make our first guest speaker announcement for 2020...
This lovely chap really needs no introduction, but well, lets just say he's a Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford, a Research Fellow, an Author of many books, the co-founder of 'Galaxy Zoo', the Principal Investigator for the citizen science web portal Zooniverse and the face of BBC's 'The Sky at Night'! YES!!!! ..... you've got it, it's the wonderfully charming CHRIS LINTOTT!!!!

Chris will be talking about his new book 'THE CROWD AND THE COSMOS' which you will be able to purchase at Solarsphere, meet Chris and get your copy signed!

The Crowd and the Cosmos is 'a superbly written insight into the unique and powerful contribution enthusiasts from all walks of life can make to scientific knowledge' (says Brian Cox) and 'delightfully anecdotal, inclusive and witty' (says Brian May). It tells the story of how I, a distracted astronomer, try to understand the Universe with the help of more than a million volunteers, concentrating mostly on our attempt to understand galaxies, find planets and occasionally stumble across what might be aliens. The project has made for some great stories, and a recent lecture was described thus by 8-year old Felicity Hicks. 'It was funny but it made your brain ache. A lecture's only good if it makes your brain ache a bit.'

Awesome!!!!

I really want to be there next year now! He's my favourite of all the SAN presenters. :) x

Amazing news.....I’ll get my gin bar at the ready 😁 xx

We saw him speak @ Bluedot. He’s very engaging and spent loads of time meeting people after. Lovely guy tbh.

Fantastic, he also enjoys a Lemoncello, him & Marek Kukula couldn't get enough of it when they came to Sark & popped by the witches house where I lived at the time. Reet down to Earth bloke, for a space head ha. Car now fixed and I'm still going to get a ticket for next year, and this time the brakes won't even stop me!
