Really looking foward to all the amazing things Vicky is planning for our own Science Festival next year. Watch out for dinosaurs and DNA artwork hanging in the Octagon!
Part of the Being Human National Festival of Humanities, the Heaven’s Above! Interactive Exhibition takes place on Saturday 19th November, 11.00-18.00. The exhibition will include the Ordered Universe project on the scientific world of Robert Grosseteste (c.1168-1253), medieval time reckoning in the exquisite Durham Cathedral manuscript Hunter 100 and medieval astrolabes. Art-work from sculptor Alexandra Carr, projection artist Ross Ashton and Glass Artists from the National Glass Centre, University of Sunderland, will be included, alongside displays on research about Renaissance astronomy, human vision perception and modern cosmology. Experience the universe with Occulus Rift technology, and a blow-up Planetarium, and meet characters from the past, from the Time Bandit re-enactors. All at the Pemberton Lecture Rooms on Palace Green. Free entry – please spread the word!
