Along with our SEPNet colleague from the University of Southampton we're running stand were visitors can learn about multiwavelength astronomy. For example they can find out how to split light into a rainbow using a CD and toilet roll, can look at themselves and galaxies in the infrared, learn about the LOFAR radio telescope, and even about detecting dark matter.
