On 14 and 16 May, researchers from the School of Physics and Astronomy will be taking part in the annual Pint of Science event, an international festival that brings together scientists and the public in the informal atmosphere of a local pub.

Dr James Cho of the School of Physics and Astronomy is a member of the UK-led international team that will develop the European Space Agency’s Ariel mission, dedicated to observing and characterising planets in orbit around other stars (exoplanets).

The SSFX project challenged independent filmmakers from around the world to create short-films incorporating sounds from space recorded by satellites. We've now packaged the best of these films together into a single anthology which we'll be premiering on Wednesday 28 March 2018 6-8pm in ArtsTwo.

At 7:00 pm on Thursday 24 May Dr Tommi Tenkanen will deliver the next in our series of Physics and Astronomy public talks. He will outline what we know — and what we don't know — about dark matter, the substance that makes up around 85% of all the matter in the Universe. 

Find out why MSc study might be great for your career and what our programmes in physics or astronomy could offer you.

Prof. William Gillin of the School of Physics and Astronomy and Director of QMUL’s Materials Research Institute has been shortlisted for the Bruce Dickinson Entrepreneur of the Year Award. His nomination stems from the establishment, in June 2017, of a spin-out company called Chromosol, which aims to revolutionise optical communication networks. 

The Centre for Research in String Theory has been invited to coordinate the preparation of the grant agreement of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network of the European Commission: SAGEX "Scattering Amplitudes: from Geometry to Experiment". 

Queen Mary astronomer Dr Guillem Anglada Escudé is a member of an international team of astronomers who have used a novel method to find a black hole hiding in a nearby group of stars.
