Today the University of Lincoln hosted the Lincoln Get Hold of Technology & Science (LiGHTS) festival. Our school presented two exciting activities. Our own astrophysicists, Dr Phil Sutton, told to old and young about recent news from the world of planets and stars. The most young listeners asked the most difficult questions, like what is the shape of two very close stars.
Another activity was about the music of glasses, inspired by the work of famous natural philosopher Edward Delaval, FRS, once the owner of the Doddington hall next to Lincoln. This is a joint project between our experimental physicists Dr Matt Booth and Dr Martin Scheuregger, a lecturer in the School of Fine & Performing Arts at the University of Lincoln.
