ICG Students Demonstrate Cosmology at Intech Adult Only Night

On 1st March three PhD students from the ICG participated in an 'adults-only' evening at INTECH Science Centre in Winchester, where the theme was space. Timothy Clemson presented a display of astronomical images along with interactive simulations of the Universe and answered the public's questions about cosmology. Meanwhile, David Wilkinson and Dominic Galliano presented hands-on science shows that featured audience participation-based explanations of light travelling through the sun and redshift, and demonstrations of the concepts of supernovae and the CMB.
