Life And Work Of Caroline and William Herschel
21 Jan 2021 • Webinar, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Organised by IoP West Midlands Branch (Keele Centre)
Abstract:
William Herschel is one of the outstanding figures in the history of astronomy and physics having discovered the planet Uranus and Infrared radiation. However, his sister, Caroline, is often overlooked, yet she discovered several comets and was instrumental in William’s work. In this talk we will not only take a whistle-stop tour of the unconventional lives and work of William and Caroline, from Hanover to Bath and then to Slough, but we will look at the historical and social context that enabled such discoveries to be made. This talk will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the history of astronomy and physics, but also to teachers of science wanting to see how science is rooted in the society in which it is produced.
