Light and Dark Matters: Sunrise walk and breakfast with scientist Lucie Green

21 November, 2015 @ 7:15 am - 8:45 am

£20

Join Royal Society University Research Fellow Lucie Green to walk and talk about the activity and atmosphere of our nearest star, the Sun. Green studies the immense magnetic fields in the Sun’s atmosphere which sporadically erupt into the Solar System. Find out what would happen if these eruptions reached the Earth and how that could drive major space weather events. The walk meets at 07.15 at the Turbine Hall entrance and ends with breakfast in the East Room on Level 6 with spectacular views of London waking up.

Over twenty four hours at Tate Modern leading artists, scientists, philosophers, theorists and the public come together to debate, share and uncover our contemporary experience of light, dark and dark matter. What are the many forms of light and dark that surround us? How do we harness this energy and what do we imagine for the future? Explore these questions and more through sunrise and sunset walks, talks & discussions and collaborative workshops.

Part of the International Year of Light in collaboration with the Institute of Physics
