Upcoming Events: Public lectures in Natural science
In the autumn of 2021, we will be holding the following public lectures in the natural sciences in collaboration with Sønderborg Folkeuniversitet with the option of purchasing a prior dinner or refreshments during the events. It is also possible to inquire about a provided overnight stay:
- 5 October 2021, at 19-21: Big Bang and the Invisible universe. Professor of astronomy Steen Hannestad, AU.
Dark matter and dark energy make up 95% of the universe, but we don't actually know what it is. But without the dark material, we, and life, would not exist. Does the latest research into cosmology reveal what the unseen universe actually consists of?
- 9 November 2021, at 19-21: the innermost core. Author Lotte Kaa Andersen and professor of geophysics David Lundbek Egholm, AU.
Hear about the Danish seismologist Inge Lehmann's life and research career. This includes how the speed distribution of seismic printing waves became world-famous by discovering that the earth has an inner core and that the interior of the Earth is thus three-divided and not in two parts.
- 23 November 2021, at 19-21: The salt balance of our cells. Associate professor in molecular biology Hanne Poulsen, AU.
Our cells are completely dependent on salt. In the cells ' membranes, a tiny nanomachine is called the sodium-potassium pump, carefully sorting different salations. Research in recent years has shown that defects in the pump cause rare diseases.
The Link to the registration will follow in August.
