The Next Big Questions in Astronomy – Professor Carolin Crawford
In her final Gresham Lecture, Professor Crawford talks about where the next big breakthrough will come from: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-next-big-questions
For each exciting advance or discovery that takes place in Astronomy, other just as important questions either arise or remain unanswered. In my last Gresham lecture I shall review what the near future might bring – the exciting space missions, satellites and telescopes – and the fundamental scientific challenges they are designed to tackle.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-next-big-questions
