EP42 - Sunday, 28th March 2021 7:30pm BST - Crazy Interstellar Rockets by Dr Julian Onions

Recommended Posts

SGL member Dr Julian Onions (@JulianO) joins us this Sunday for his brand new, hot off the press talk 'Crazy Interstellar Rockets'.

Julian has always had an interest in astronomy, and after many years as an amateur studied for a Phd in astrophysics at the University of Nottingham. There he studies computer models of galaxy formation using some of the biggest computers in the world, building model universes using mostly dark matter. He also helps out with undergraduate teaching and various outreach activities.

Julian has put together a new talk 'Crazy Interstellar Rockets' looking at what sort of rockets or spaceships could we use to go to the distant stars. In the talk we will explore some of the crazier designs that have been proposed over the years, most of which have some possibility of working. The future may be nearer than we think!

I'm really looking forward to this and hope to see you all there 🙂

Interesting recent mutterings about a "workable" (Year, right) "Warp Drive" that doesn't require exotic forms of mass or energy.
