Listen on

Episode notes

In this special episode of Life Solved, Glenn Harris interviews talented experts at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation to find out about the UK’s agenda to double space activity across the next ten years.

 

Plus, find out how The University of Portsmouth is sharing in those ambitions by combining data analytics expertise with world-class training, engineering and construction.

 

Glenn’s joined by Professor Adam Amara and Professor David Bacon who explain how researchers can harness the power of space for cross-disciplinary collaboration, and fast! That even includes building the biggest radio telescope in the solar system… on the far side of the moon!

 

Dr Laura Nuttall and Professor Claudia Maraston join Glenn to explain fascinating work into gravitational waves and black holes.
