Details from Sussex University’s Physic Talks

Details of our series of public lectures are now online at:

We host two series of lectures here at the University of Sussex in Falmer, Brighton.

One is the Institute of Physics (South Central Branch) series that take place on the first Tuesday of the month.  We usually get between 50 and 150 people attending these evening lectures, with the audience consisting of some of our undergraduate students, practising and retired physicists, and local school (GCSE) and college students usually make up a third of the audience.

The talks do not assume any prior knowledge of physics.    The Sussex Universe series is aimed at a level suitable for our undergraduates and A-level students, and usually take place on Thursday evenings. Members of the general public are very welcome to attend!

Upcoming talks include: – SU: Thursday 29th September, “Exploring the end of the Dark Ages”, Dr Steve Wilkins – IOP: Tuesday 4th October 2016, “What Is Dark Energy?”, Prof. Bob Nichol – SU: Thursday 27th October, “Quantum Computers: The World’s most incredible machines”, Dr Winni Hensinger – IOP: Tuesday 1st November 2016, “Listening to Einstein’s Universe: the Hunt for Gravitational Waves”, Prof. Martin Henry – SU: Thursday 24th November, “High resolution spectroscopy: The hunt for unknown Physics”, Dr Matthias Keller There will also be talks in December to be announced soon.     Further details, including posters and how to get here, can be found at

We look forward to seeing many of you at the lectures!
