SAS Lecture: Crazy Interstellar Rockets

About this event :

What sort of rockets or spaceships could we use to go to the distant stars. 

We will explore some of the crazier designs that have been proposed over the years, most of which have some possibility of working. 

The future may be nearer than we think!

Julian works with computer simulations of large fractions of the universe to understand trends in galaxy formation and evolution.

Investigating the tools that help us form and analyse such simulations such as halo finders, tree builders and semi-analytic models.

He also does a number of outreach activities, giving talks to astronomy societies and other interested groups such as rotary and U3A, as well as working with schools and scouts/guide groups.
