Our Atmospheric Environment: Air Pollution, Ozone and Climate Change

Air pollution, ozone depletion, and climate change are all consequences of the changing composition of our atmosphere, primarily as a result of human actions. In this course we will learn about the basic science which governs our atmosphere, its weather and climate, as well as the many complex interactions which can amplify climate change. The physics of radiation also underpins how satellites are used to provide invaluable data for both weather forecasting and climate studies.... [More]

Hands-On The Universe

In this hands-on introductory course we will consider some of the exciting concepts of modern astronomy such as the birth and death of stars, the search for life and the mysterious dark matter that permeates the Universe. With the help of a suitable torch and a star map that you will receive, in this practical course you will learn how to find your way around the winter night sky. What can you see in the night sky apart from the Moon and planets and how do you find them? How can... [More]

DNA: The Molecule of Life

In the last half century, our knowledge of life has been revolutionised by the finding that DNA is the molecule that carries the genetic information that determines the characteristics of any organism. This course will introduce students to the history of the discovery of the chemical structure of DNA, the structure itself, its role in the transmission of genetic information, and how it is used in activities such as forensic examination of crime scenes. Students will undertake a... [More]

Physics' Revolutionary Decade: 1895 to 1905

As the 19th century was drawing to a close, many physicists thought our quest to understand the universe was done and dusted. Then, between 1895 and 1905, atoms, radioactivity, relativity and quantum physics were discovered, turning that universe, or at least our understanding, on its head. Join us in exploring this revolutionary decade, and its lasting impacts. [More]

Scientists and Philosophers Need to Talk

We all know what Science is – but do we know what ‘reality’ is; or even what ‘understanding’ is? Just how to we ‘know’, and how do we know that we know? There is abundant evidence that we don’t – and even the experts don’t! These questions are as much philosophical as they are scientific, and Tibor offers some deep philosophical insights into them. Since the mid-20th century, “metaphysics” has become something of a dirty word – especially, but not exclusively, in scientific... [More]
