The July Lectures in Physics
A program of lectures aimed at providing insights into fundamental questions in Physics

With the arrival of space flight, humanity is learning about the geology of the planets and moons in the Solar System by visiting them. Meanwhile, back on Earth, scientists use exquisite machines called particle accelerators – such as the Australian Synchrotron – to build small pieces of a planet and shine light on planetary and lunar processes and origins.

This talk will describe how we can use Victorian minerals to reveal the secrets of the Solar System.
