About The Event

Sophisticated ground and space-based telescopes are transforming our view of the Universe. Using the latest jaw-dropping images and stunning audio visuals, Jane reveals the wonders of the cosmos, sharing perspective, majesty and beauty on the grandest scale. Her powerful and insightful odyssey begins and ends with ‘nothing’ yet the vastness between is mind-blowing!

Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, author, broadcaster and presenter, Jane Green, has appeared on television as well as national and regional radio, and has shared her passion for astronomy all over the world, most recently for Sir Richard Branson and his Virgin Galactic Team at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. She has also delivered the inaugural Sir Patrick Moore Memorial Lecture and scripted a live theatre interview with the second man on the moon, US astronaut Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin.

Jane co-presented a pioneering national theatre tour – A Tour of the Universe – deemed ‘a first and a triumph’ by BBC Sky at Night presenter, Professor Chris Lintott. She writes regularly for leading UK and US astronomy publications and is author of the bestselling Haynes Astronomy Manual.

When not indulging her passion for astronomy, Jane’s other role is as a Racing Judge for the British Horseracing Authority; she recently made history by becoming the first woman to judge the Classic Oaks race.
