There will be two lunchtime seminars from visitors during the last week of June. 1) Rachael Amaro (University of Arizona) on “Clouds and Circulation in the Irradiated Brown Dwarf NLTT5306B”. Please contact Sarah Casewell for information. LTD at 2pm on Tuesday 28th June. 2) Jess Speedie (Victoria) on “Velocity Kinks: Reliable Signposts of Planets in […]
This week’s online-only Astrophysics Seminar at 3pm on Wednesday is the last scheduled for the 2021-22 season. Vincent van Eylen (UCL) will tell us about “The architecture of planets and their host stars” Abstract: Thousands of exoplanets have now been detected and they exhibit a striking diversity in properties, with system architectures sometimes similar but […]
Astrophysics Seminar – Wednesday June 15th 3pm – Can Cui on “Turbulence in outer protoplanetary disks”
This week’s astrophysics seminar is by Can Cui (Cambridge). Online, and projected in LTA, Online access in Teams at the address below. Abstract: Turbulence is essential to many fundamental processes in protoplanetary disks, including angular momentum transport, dust evolution, and planet migration. I will focus on two instabilities that can drive turbulent motions in outer […]
Laura Rogers (Cambridge) will present remotely via Teams, and be projected in LTA. Title and abstract: An observational perspective on white dwarf planetary systems Around a third of white dwarfs are externally polluted by planetary material. It is hypothesised that chunks of planetary material get perturbed onto star grazing orbits, tidally disrupt, and accrete onto […]
Today’s speaker is our own Beatriz Sanchez-Cano, talking about “Martian Space Weather” live at 3pm in LTA, and the talk should also be streamed on Teams.

We are pleased to announce that the latest in our series of EDI Seminars will be presented by Sue Nelson in celebration of International Women’s Day and will take place in person at Space Park Leicester on Tuesday 8th March at 11.00 am. Sue Nelson is a science journalist, broadcaster and author of Wally Funk’s […]
Join Professor Richard Alexander as he discusses how planets and planetary systems are formed, highlighting what we understand, what we don’t understand, and questions for the future.
In this lecture, Professor Wilkinson explores how hunting for dark matter with high performance computers, and the combination of novel machine learning techniques with next generation HPC technology is driving scientific discovery.
PlanetarySeminar: Solar wind and planetary magnetospheres coupling: macrophysical and microphysical processes.
At 14:00 on Wednesday February 8th, 2022, Dr Lina Hadid from LPP, France will be presenting a seminar titled: “Solar wind and planetary magnetospheres coupling: macrophysical and microphysical processes”. The seminar will be accessible via Teams.Abstract: “Despite many years of research, some properties regarding the dynamical processes of the planetary magnetospheres and in the solar […]
We are pleased to announce the third of our “Physics Research Bites”, a short “bring-your-own-lunch” seminar series aimed at students and staff wishing to know more about the exciting research being undertaken here in Leicester, jointly hosted by PhySoc, AstRoSoc and the Physics Community Team. Due to complications with COVID, our speaker Naomi Rowe-Gurney will be joining us remotely […]
