Scientific Discussion at the Royal Society – Astronomy from the Moon: the next decades

Share this

On 13-14 February the Royal Society will host a scientific discussion meeting on the topic of ‘Astronomy from the Moon: The next decades”.

Low-frequency radio astronomy from the radio-shielded far side of the Moon may have a unique science impact on cosmology. The permanently shadowed polar craters may also offer advantages for passive cooling of infrared telescopes. Potential applications include studies of exoplanets as well as searches for technosignatures and SETI. This meeting will examine these and other potential uses of the Moon as a platform for astronomical observations and the related policy implications.

This event is free although registration is required. Further information about the speakers, programme and how to register for this meeting can be found in the link below:
