Engineering for Space

Marvel at our extraordinary universe and the music of Bach with our Sunday morning series for inquiring and curious minds, with divine music, lively conversation and stimulating science.

The music

As it’s December, we perform one of Bach’s Christmas cantatas, this one written for the Feast of John the Evangelist and first performed on December 27, 1723. It’s a sturdy, muscular work, with sackbuts (baroque trombones) doubling the vocal lines.

The science

We’re joined by Maggie Aderin-Pocock, presenter of the legendary BBC series The Sky at Night since 2014. With an extensive career building satellites, she talks about the challenges of engineering for space.

Our very own Sunday service is a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science. There is no better way to start a Sunday morning.

In partnership with the Institute of Physics.

Free physics fun
Before and after Bach the Universe and Everything, enjoy free physics activities in the Hall One Foyer, courtesy of our series partners the Institute of Physics.

This month chat to scientists from the National Physics Laboratory and discover how we define every day measurements, such as the second and the kilogram.

11am to 11.30am and 12.30pm to 1pm
