BBC presenter set to open after hours event at Glasgow Science Centre

BBC’s Sky at Night presenter is set to open an after hours event at the Glasgow Science Centre aimed at adults.

The BBC presenter Chris Lintott will open the first in a series of adult only themed evenings at the Glasgow Science Centre.

The astrophysicist will be hosting a talk at the event about the stars and space.

As well as the event giving adults the chance to explore the science centre after hours and experience spaced themed activities and events.

Visitors can also watch live science experiments and find out what the Moon smells like.

Chris Lintott will be talking at the event as well as other interactive exhibits

Professor Chris Lintott, said: “Science Lates are a real celebration of science and there’s nothing like a Glasgow audience to be welcoming and enthusiastic – and to ask the tough questions.

“I can’t wait to get my hands on the controls of the Planetarium again, flying through the universe the fabulous planetarium team build for me.

“What I say will depend on the audience and what’s in the news – but with everything from trips to the Moon to black holes in the news, there’ll be plenty to talk about.”

Yvonne Slater, science experience manager at Glasgow Science Centre, said: “We can’t wait for Professor Chris Lintott to kick-start Science Lates. For people who haven’t seen Chris on TV, he’s an astrophysicist who makes learning about the universe, and our place in it, really accessible and entertaining.

“There are so many fun things to do, including finding out what the Moon smells like. I won’t give the answer away, but I can confirm it’s not cheese.

“Glasgow Science Centre isn’t just for children and we’ve put together an exciting series of events where adults are free to roam all the exhibits, a tasty food café and our silent disco with a drink in hand.”

Tickets for the 2019/2020 series of Science Lates are now on sale. For more information visit:
