Southern Branch Space Lecture, with Tm Leighton, ISVR Thursday 16 December 2021 Winchester Science Centre
Our last event for 2021 will be a very special one, hosted at the Winchester Science Centre. We will be joined by Professor Tim Leighton, ISVR who will give a talk of Acoustics in space. Discover:
• why we would sound like bass smurfs on Venus if we spoke and survived;
• why Martians would have ears on their feet;
• why half the notes from a church organ on Venus would play at lower pitches than they do on Earth, and the other half of the notes would play at higher pitches;
• why we have only just heard the first sounds from Mars, when we have had photographs for decades.
A reception with drinks and mince pies will be available on arrival, in the Bio:Space room. This is adjacent to the Sound, vibration and hearing exhibition, which will be open for a quick visit before the talk. Attendees will also enjoy a complimentary planetarium show to close off the evening.
This event is free to members of the IOA and students.
