Description PhD projects are approaching completion concerned with: simulating the evolution of the chemical elements in the Universe; understanding radio evidence of star formation in dwarf galaxies; measuring proper motions (positional changes) in the near-infrared to look for nearby extreme low-mass/failed stars; modelling the polarisation of starlight by dust disks around young stars
Exploitation Route Through publications and further exploitation of the results by the worldwide astronomical community. (Too soon to comment further)
Sectors Education,Culture, Heritage, Museums and Collections

 
Description So far - through outreach by the students in training taking roles in the astronomy open evenings and group visits at Bayfordbury Observatory.

Description Bayfordbury 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Type Of Presentation Workshop Facilitator
Geographic Reach Local
Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact Bayfordbury open evenings are held 6x a year and are usually attended by 300+ members of the public, of all ages. We entertain them with talks, a planetarium, the chance to look through our telescopes, and hands-on activities.

We host a website, and have participated in BBC outreach events. We are known in the area through these events, and get asked from time to time by local radio for interviews touching on astronomy news.
