Hosted by the Mining Institute (The North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers), this free public lecture features a talk by professor Simon Green, Senior Lecturer in Planetary and Space Sciences at the Open University.

Simon’s research focuses on physical studies of planetary surfaces and small solar system bodies (asteroids, comets, interplanetary dust and space debris) through analysis of spacecraft data, ground and space-based observations, laboratory simulations and computer modelling.
