Please note that I have stepped back from giving so many outreach talks, so please do not be offended if I am unable to oblige a request!
I have lectured on a wide variety of astronomical topics to a range of different audiences. Examples include:
|Small bodies of the Solar System||Your place in the cosmos|
|The beauty and science of nebulae||When galaxies collide|
|The early Universe||The Sun, our nearest star|
|The red planet||X-ray astrophysics: the high energy cosmos|
|The cool Universe||Dark energy and the ever-expanding Universe|
|The search for dark matter||An introduction to the Milky Way|
|Exploring the Solar System||Star dust|
|Our nearest neighbour, the Moon||The lives of stars|
|Atmospheric phenomena||Comets - visitors from the frozen edge of the Solar System|
|Exoplanets and how to find them||Echoes of the Big Bang|
|Large telescopes and why we need them||Rotation in space|
|A voyage round Saturn, its rings and moons||The sounds of the Universe|
|The age of the Universe||Clusters of galaxies|
|The next big questions||Quasars, the brightest black holes|
|How the Earth moves||The transient Universe|
Versions of some of these talks are available online:
These talks date from my 2011-2015 stint as the Professor of Astronomy at Gresham College in the City of London.
Short abstracts, video recordings, a copy of the slides and a transcript are available for all 24 of my Gresham lectures, at a dedicated Gresham College website.
These videos are also available on YouTube, where they have amassed over 2.83 million views so far (by Feb21) - thanks guys!
