Worldwide AstroFest: 22 May 2021 (Replay)


On Saturday, 22 May at 3pm BST (1400 GMT) the latest Worldwide AstroFest online event featured three talks that span the astronomical spectrum: from a drive way in the Cotswolds where parts of a meteorite fell in February, to the spectacular miracle of nature that is a solar eclipse, and to the very edge of a monstrous black hole 55 million light-years from Earth. Running time 1hr 54min.

Our Speakers:

Chris Bowden: a keen photographer and videographer who has travelled the world to witness and document solar eclipses.
Alejandra Jimenez Rosales: a member of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration whose research focuses on the study of the properties of matter falling onto black holes.
Sara Russell: Research Leader in Meteorites at the Natural History Museum in London who has studied February’s meteorite fall in Winchcombe, UK.
