Public Science Lecture Series

Hosted by Aerospace, Physics and Space Sciences, the Public Lecture Series is an evening lecture on a topic of general interest in science. This year the lectures will be virtual and livestreamed on our YouTube channel.

In lieu of the telescopes "hors d'oeuvres" that follow our public talks, the Student Astronomical Society, Students for the Exploration and Development of Space and the Astrobiological Research and Education Society have put together a virtual space where you can learn more and interact live with club members. This more informal setting but allows for more interaction. Please join us here after the talk at the for this interactive virtual experience.
