Sounding Stars and the Search for Other Worlds

The NASA Kepler Mission has made ground-breaking observations of the natural resonances of stars (asteroseismology), and discovered thousands of planets orbiting stars in the nearby regions of our Galaxy. The NASA TESS Mission, launched in 2018, is continuing these endeavours but now across most of the sky. 

Join astrophysicist Professor Bill Chaplin (University of Birmingham) to find out the latest science results from TESS and Kepler, and artist Liz Hingley to discover how Professor Chaplin is working with artists, in the PHYART@UoB Project, to add new life to this exciting science.
