Scoping out the Skies @ Natural History Museum (22 January)


It’s just over 400 years since a telescope was first pointed towards the night sky. Join us as we discover why this stargazing tool landed early astronomers in trouble and how it has shaped our understanding of the universe.

Could the next generation of telescopes reveal the existence of life elsewhere in the cosmos? Come and find out.

This event is part of the Nature Live series. From ladybird spotting and dinosaurs to bat winter survival strategies and how nature inspires fashion, these regular Nature Live talks and events are an enjoyable way to explore the natural world.

They are informal and mostly free!
