Space travel comes to Milton Keynes on Tuesday night, at a talk hosted by the Open University.

The latest in the OpenMinds lecture series is titled Landing On A Comet: What We Found On Rosetta And How We Are Applying It On Earth.

OU scientists from Milton Keynes played a key role in the Rosetta Mission, which saw the first-ever space probe to land on a comet. They helped to develop a number of instruments on board Philae, which landed on the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko in November.

The free lecture takes place on Tuesday, February 17 from 6.30-7.30pm in the Berrill Lecture Theatre.
