Lecture, Central London, Wednesday, 29 Mar 2023 - 18:00
The End of Life on Earth
Astronomically speaking, there are a number of ways in which life on Earth could be wiped out. For example, a giant asteroid could hit Earth with such energy that the oceans are boiled off.
This lecture will assess which astronomical events are likely and which are not. [It will not consider anthropogenic means by which life on Earth might end].
