“ Heavier Than Helium – The Story of the Heavy Elements”

Society Meeting

Thursday, 23rd October 2014 (19:45 - 22:00)

Venue: Meeting Room, Swinton Bottom Club (Formerly Swinton WMC)

“Excluding Dark Matter and Dark Energy, only 2% of the mass in the observable universe is heavier than Helium. It is these ‘Heavy Elements’ which make up the majority of our planet and the objects we use everyday. In this talk I aim to outline their formation and how they became so concentrated on our planet.”

Speaker: Andrew Kirton-Vaughan
