University of Central Lancashire, Harrington Lecture Theatre, Harrington Building, Preston

Speakers: Prof Don Kurtz

Following last year’s stunning presentation on the 'Songs of the Stars' Prof Kurtz is returning to show us, and guide us through explanations of, some of the most beautiful pictures of the Universe. See stars and planets being born, stars dying, stars exploding, swirling gas clouds, stars made of solid “diamond”, galaxies in unprecedented detail, gas jets shooting out of giant black holes at nearly the speed of light, crashing and cannibalistic galaxies, and the deepest-space, most distant photographs ever taken, looking back more than 10 billion years in time, nearly to the birth of the Universe.
