Manchester Science Festival 2014

Hello readers!MSF14_logo_DATE

Sorry we’ve been so quiet recently. Busy busy in the lab, with very little time to catch up on other things.

Just a quick note to remind you that the Manchester Science Festival begins today, and there’ll be 11 days of science fun across the city. There’s a huge range of events and activities taking place, so there really is something for everyone.

We will be at the University of Manchester’s Science Spectacular on Saturday 25th. This annular event is taking place in Whitworth Hall and the Manchester Museum, and will showcase research from across the University, with activities for all ages. Help us out by completing the sentence: Science Is Spectacular Because…

And on Tuesday 28th we’re running The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Solar System, again at the Manchester Museum. See meteorites, moon rocks and pieces of Mars. Watch a volcanic eruption, or a comet forming in front of you.

For more general Festival info check out the website, and follow the festival Twitter @McrSciFest and #MSF14

We hope to see our followers at these events!

I'm a Post Doc in the Isotope Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry group. I study xenon isotope ratios using the RELAX mass spectrometer, to try to learn more about the origins and evolution of our solar system. I look at a wide range of samples from solar wind returned by NASA's Genesis mission to zircons (some of the oldest known terrestrial rocks), from meteorites to presolar grains.
