About this event
2021 has been an epic year for the science of planetary geology. From humankind’s first-ever powered flight on another planet to the spectacular recovery of 4.5 billion-year-old space rocks in Gloucestershire. Scientists are now studying both of these events to understand the formation of our solar system and reveal the holy grail of science – the beginnings of life. Join The Rock Showman & Flossy in an interactive performance lecture that reveals secrets of the Candy Floss of our solar system, explores the Pork Pie from Outer Space, and questions whether there ever was life on Mars. Audiences get hands-on with space rocks as they learn how details within rocks tell scientists incredible stories.
