NEW YEAR LECTURE: Presented on ZOOM 09th January at 7pm
ABOUT THE LECTURE:
The science observations began in the spring of this year, and the images and spectra beamed back down to Earth have been nothing short of spectacular, offering a completely new view of our universe. Here, I will explore some of the early results produced by the observatory, and how I will be using it to study the giant planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Dr Henrik Melin is a STFC James Webb Fellow at the University of Leicester. He studies the giant planets in our solar system, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, and in particular how the aurora, or northern and southern lights, inject energy to the upper atmosphere. He has previously worked on the Cassini mission to Saturn, another hugely successful international mission.
