Eventbrite - 1st Edmund Weaver Lecture in Astronomy
The Cassini spacecraft has been in orbit around Saturn since 2004. The unprecedented detail of over a decade’s worth of observations of Saturn, its rings and many moons has helped us further understand our Solar System. With Saturn being placed onto a direct collision with Saturn in the later part of 2017 we are expecting the most exciting science to come from these more risky manoeuvres. We will recap some of the most important and exciting discoveries that Cassini has made over the following decade along with its very last contributions to science.

Phil Sutton graduated in Physics with Astrophysics from Nottingham Trent University. He worked at the physics department of Loughborough University for 10 years where he also completed a PhD degree on Saturn’s narrow F ring. One of aims of his work was to create numerical models to replicate observations taken by the Cassini spacecraft.
