June Meeting - Prof Nigel Mason

Our next monthly meeting is on Thursday, 7th June 2018 at 7:30pm.

Astrobiology; The Cradle of Life


How did life begin on Earth? Is there life elsewhere in the universe? How can we look for it?

These are three fundamental questions for modern science. In this talk I will discuss how we are trying to answer them.

Professor Nigel Mason is the Professor of Molecular Physics in the School of Physical Science, The Open University. He graduated from UCL in 1983 & obtained a PhD in atomic physics in 1987. He joined the Open University in 2002. Professor Mason was awarded an OBE in 2007 for services to science.
