Speakers: Dr Marke Kukula, Public Astronomer, Royal Observatory, Greenwich

Our tiny blue planet is the only place we know where life can exist - a precious ark in the vast ocean of space. But throughout Earth's history everything from exploding stars to impacts with giant asteroids have all left their mark on our planet - with profound consequences for its cargo of plants and animals. In this talk we'll explore how the world around us has been shaped by events in space and how life on Earth has adapted to survive them.
