Saving the world with microscopic gravity sensors

Tue 5 Sep • 14:30 – 15:30

Auditorium • Attenborough Centre
University of Sussex

Organised by:
  • British Science Association
  • Suitable for: 16+

    A gravity sensor so accurate it is approaching the sensitivity required to detect the gravitational pull of a human being and fits in your pocket: a cheap, accessible alternative to the currently available commercial gravimeters. Join Richard Middlemiss, a key force in its development, as he explores how the invention could revolutionise our prediction of volcanic eruptions to save lives and livelihoods.

    Richard Middlemiss is the winner of the British Science Association’s Isambard Kingdom Brunel Award Lecture for industry, technology & engineering. This event is supported by Arm.

    Event booking has closed for 2017. We hope you enjoyed the Festival. Join us next year!
