This Funzing Experience:
You have probably heard of the seven wonders of the world, but what if we took that “off planet” and extended it to the seven wonders of the solar system? In this whirlwind adventure to the furthest reaches of our solar system and back, planetary scientist Dr Sheila Kanani explores some magnificent, awe inspiring wonders of our local neighbourhood.

You will learn about a moon the size of England that could harbour life, volcanoes that spew ice instead of burning hot lava, a moon with rivers and lakes of a liquid that isn’t water and a ring system unlike anything else in the vicinity. Come and be wowed by the seven (or more) wonders of this place we call home!

Dr Sheila Kanani is the Education, Outreach & Diversity Officer at the Royal Astronomical Society, an ESERO-UK Space Ambassador, a STEM ambassador and an Ogden Science Officer. She is a planetary physicist, science presenter, space comedienne and physics teacher with a background in astrophysics and astronomy research from UK universities. Her experience includes being an ambassador of science, public speaking, events organisation, science journalism and school visits. Sheila provides space science consultancy on various levels, including for television, print and web media. She is a proud mum, a hockey and saxophone player, and loves Buffy the vampire slayer.

Venue: Number 177, Hoxton

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
