Space Lates – Planetary Science

For this Space Lates, we’re heading to the planets, with our guests talking about past, current and future missions to some of our closest neighbours in the Solar System, and some a “little” further away. We’ve curated a special evening packed with guest speakers, interactive workshops, planetarium shows, stargazing, and live demos. Explore our galleries after-hours and finish your evening with a live astronomy session with Leicester Astronomical Society (weather permitting).
