Following the AGM we are pleased to welcome Dr. Richard Ghail, professor in engineering geology and planetary science at Royal Holloway, University of London.
He will be presenting our annual AGM lecture, which is traditionally on an unusual subject:
“Venus: new insights and the future exploration”
Talk description: Venus has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, with four missions scheduled in the next decade, and a paradigm shift in our understanding. New discoveries and fresh insights are shedding light not so much on why Venus is so different to Earth, but what their similarities tell us about Earth-sized planets generally, and how they differ from smaller terrestrial planets like Mars and the Moon. Venus appears to be in a state similar to that of the Proterozoic Earth. The key message is that both planets are complex, with the outcome of fundamental processes (like convection) more strongly dependent on change, both in initial conditions and external forcing. But as was true for Mars, these insights now require a flotilla of missions to provide more holistic data on our twin planet.
The event is free of charge and there is no need to register.
