About The Event

The vision of the ball in space floating inside the rings, and the family of moons that can be tracked down has been a source of fascination to many astronomers over the years since Galileo first observed it with a telescope. It is now one of the planets that has been well studied by spacecraft that have flown-by and orbitted this gas-giant planet. 

We will follow our usual routine of a series of table talks and games, followed by a short talk in the lecture theatre and some model building.
