Event description

Description

The Royal Australian Mint has teamed up with the Australian National University Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics to officially launch a new product and discuss intriguing questions like: Can humans really survive in space? Is there life elsewhere in our Solar System?

These are just two of the questions that will be explored in a fascinating night of space exploration.

Life in Space! Understanding and exploring our universe – a Talk and Coin series

The event will feature four engaging talks from the following scientists:

  • Associate Professor Penny King, geologist Mars expert – Exploring Mars with rovers

  • Dr Emma Tucker, specialist in space medicine – Can humans survive living in space?

  • Associate Professor Charley Lineweaver, a world expert in cosmology, planets and aliens – Is there life elsewhere in our Solar System?

  • Dr Brad Tucker, astrophysicist – Planet 9: What lurks at the edges of our Solar System?

There will be time for a Q&A session at the end of the speaker sessions.

This special event will be the first opportunity for the public to purchase the Planetary Coins Ten-Coin Collection and people coming along will also have the opportunity to win 1 of 5 throughout the event!
