Parenthèse (science) | A rainy day on the sun

Tuesday 28 March 2017 19:00-21:00

What if you were told that it rains on the sun? Join Dr Patrick Antolin as he gives an informal explanation of the phenomenon of coronal rain - plasma in a state of cooling and condensing in the sun’s corona.

This parenthèse takes the form of a Café Scientifique, a forum for the discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It is informal and accessible.

This discussion will be led by Patrick Antolin of the University of St Andrews where he conducts research in applied mathematics, and moderated by Nicolas Labrosse of the University of Glasgow.
