Join us for a fascinating journey into the centre of the Sun, presented in partnership with the Royal Society. 

Royal Society Research Fellow, solar physicist and author of the acclaimed '15 Million Degrees: A Journey to the Centre of the Sun', Professor Lucie Green joins us for a fascinating discussion about how the Sun works, the latest research in solar physics, and how a solar storm could threaten everything we know. 

Watch Lucie Green's favourite facts about the Sun

Among many other topics, we will explore how the immense magnetic fields in the Sun’s atmosphere sporadically erupt into the Solar System. If these eruptions reach the Earth they can drive major space weather events

Joining Lucie on stage to talk all things solar is space scientist, author and presenter of The Sky at Night Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE. Maggie’s latest book, 'The Sky at Night: Book of the Moon', is released in September by BBC Books. 

The talk will be followed by a book signing in the IMAX Theatre featuring both speakers. 

This event features live subtitles.
