Speakers: Dr Edward Gomez

Travelling to alien worlds is one of the regular features of Doctor Who. But how could the TARDIS travel there and what would those alien worlds really be like? During this talk I'll discuss what we currently know about the several thousand alien worlds we've discovered in the last 20 years and if any of the worlds the Doctor has travelled to look familiar.

Dr Edward Gomez is an astronomer and education director for Las Cumbres Observatory, based at Cardiff University. He is interested in searching for asteroids which travel close to Earth, and in open access for science and education. He has been a life long fan of Doctor Who and even gave science advice to the script writers for several episodes.

We would also like to invite everyone attending to wear fancy dress. There will even be a prize for the best outfit at the end of the evening. Just remember, you need to be able to fit into your seat!

Doors open 6pm
Talk starts 6.30pm
