This year’s Family Fun Christmas Lecture is two talks in one! The event provides an exciting opportunity for children to learn more about physics. The talks explore how physics can help us answer the big questions about our universe as well as providing solutions for global problems. There will be plenty of exciting demonstrations with liquid nitrogen, exploding hydrogen balloons and more!

The lecture will discuss recent research results on the astrophysical and planetary environmental context that makes possible the synthesis of precursors to RNA, peptides and lipids. The focus will be on the role of mid-range UV light as a source of energy and as a very specific selection agent in chemical evolution.
