Lecture — The Most Important Experiment in Physics: The Double Slit Experiment
05 Dec 2019 • Lennard Jones Laboratories, Keele University, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics – IOP
Abstract:
The most important experiments in Physics, you can easily reproduce by yourself. This includes Galileo's free fall experiment, Archimedes' buoyancy (Eureka) and Eratosthenes' cast shadow from the Sun at its zenith. One of these timeless breakthroughs of the human mind into the secrets of the Universe - the double-slit experiment - ranks well above all the others, if only because, although equally simple, it still baffles Physicists to this day. It was so subversive by the time Young proposed it that Newton waited for him to die before publishing his Opticks. In this talk, Prof. Laussy will discuss why and what it has to tell us about the World we live in, from whether "things" are waves or particles, to the nature of reality.
Topics:
Lecture starts at 19:00, FREE tea & coffee available. These talks are open to everyone and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IoP.

IAUS367 — Education and Heritage in the Era of Big Data in Astronomy. First steps on the IAU 202-2030 Strategic Plan
09 Dec 2020 - 14 Dec 2020 • San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina
Organizer:
Nationa University of Rio Negro
Abstract:
The primary goal of this Symposium is to give perhaps for the first time a global vision of Education and Heritage in the frame of the goals of the IAU, taking into account the Plan 2020-2030 and to propose an eventual ‘next steps’ road map and a global astronomy education agenda for the next decade, while honouring the education from the past.

In this sense, we would foster inclusiveness in the advancement of astronomy and facilitate the advancement of the next generation of astronomers and scientists, through encouragement of the use of new methods of learning and best practices (including distance education: Moocs) in pedagogy at university level, as well as the use of astronomy for teaching and education at school level, which are part of the definitions of the proposed Office of Astronomy for Education (OAE), which also pursuits the establishment of a Network of Astronomy Education Contacts (NAECs) to provide accessible materials and astronomy literacy guidelines globally. The invited speakers are international leaders in discipline-based education in astronomy and the planetary science, but also in communication, history, inclusion and protection of world’s heritage, including the dark sky.

As with most other sciences, astronomy is being fundamentally transformed by the Information and Computation Technology (ICT) revolution. The data volume is growing exponentially, can be accessed remotely and the observations can be performed even without a real knowledge of a telescope. The new approaches to the data permits the development of new tools, techniques and resources for data analysis and produce discoveries which probably never would be reached with traditional astronomy data analysis period.
