Caroline the Comet Hunter – An Interactive Family Show


The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

Coming to us live from her Hanover home in 1828, Caroline casts her mind back to when her brother William discovered the planet Uranus, a discovery that changed their lives forever!  She remembers the struggles of being a female scientist over 200 years ago and the joys of making her own discoveries – discoveries that are still important today! Now, she’s ready to answer your questions.

On this video call, you’ll be taken on a virtual tour of the Herschel Museum of Astronomy and have a chance to ask Caroline your own questions.

10.30am-11.30am. Free but booking essential via the website. Approx. 50 minutes.
