Take a trip into the Cosmos with researchers at Oxford Physics. You will begin your trip on Earth before visiting our nearest neighbours, the Moon and the planets in our solar system. Explore strange new worlds and hear about how we hunt for life on distant planets. Let us guide you through our galaxy and those billions of light years away. The event will include stalls, hands-on activities, talks, a planetarium and more! No booking is required, but you may need to queue for a little while, so bring warm clothes.
