Event details

Our solar system harbours fascinating words, some of which are hardly explored. This includes the icy gas giants Uranus and Neptune on the outskirts of our solar system. But what is their history and what can we learn from them.

Uranus and Neptune are the most distant planets in our Solar System. They were unknown by the ancients being discovered in 1781 and 1846. As the least explored of all the planets they are both overdue dedicated missions to unlock their secrets. Join Carolyn Kennett (author of the recently published Uranus and Neptune by Kosmos) in her talk Uranus and Neptune where she will tell the story of the two icy worlds, from their formation to discovery and why it is critical that we visit them to study them in more depth.

This is the rescheduled Open Dome talk from November 2022.
