Satellites have been used to observe the Earth for over four decades. Over that time period the quality and quantity of images gathered from space have increased enormously. As our planet faces the increasing threat of environmental change, monitoring the Earth from space is becoming more and more important. This lecture will cover the development of satellite remote sensing technology over the last 40 years, and will explore some of the challenges in analysing pictures from satellites and extracting useful information from them using advanced computer techniques. The lecture will include numerous satellite photos of the Earth, revealing some of the most recent global environmental changes.

Professor Graeme Wilkinson is Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic Affairs) at Glyndŵr University. He is a graduate of Imperial College London and has a doctorate in atmospheric physics from the University of Oxford. In his early career he worked as a software consultant before taking research and academic posts in several UK universities. In 1988 he joined the EU Joint Research Centre at Ispra, Italy, where he became head of a research group in the Space Applications Institute working on the development of advanced computer techniques for the analysis of satellite images for environmental and agricultural monitoring from space. He returned to the UK in 1997 to take up senior positions at UK universities before joining Glyndŵr University in February 2007. He has written numerous scientific papers and co-authored and edited several books including: Fundamentals of Information Technology, Neurocomputation in Remote Sensing Data Analysis and Machine Vision and Advanced Image Processing in Remote Sensing .

Mars Fact or Fiction - Wed 1st Apr
Andrew Lound
Organiser: Glyndŵr University
6:30pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

Mars has enthralled mankind for centuries. Scientists and the person in the street have imagined Mars as a world populated by beings. Since the so-called ‘canals’ were observed in 1877, Mars has been the number one planet on the minds of the public. Since that time numerous myths have developed which have fogged the true image of the planet. Andrew Lound tries to separate the fact from fiction in this dramatic lecture illustrated by stunning images, supplemented by music and several props.

Andrew is a man of many interests who specialises in space science and astronomy from both a current and historical perspective. He has been presenting public lectures and staging exhibitions for over 30 years and has participated in over 2000 events. In 2005 he became the first western science speaker to tour Libya following the removal of sanctions. Due to the success of this work Andrew was asked to return to Libya in 2006 and project managed a science team and public awareness team to observe the total eclipse of the Sun, promote safe observation and stage a lecture tour. Andrew is the UK Regional Coordinator for The Planetary Society, which is the world’s largest space group. He can be heard regularly on BBC Radio WM where he is known as “The Urban Spaceman” this monthly 1 hour radio slot has been a feature on BBC radio in the midlands for 15 years.

Tracing Ancestry Using DNA.
Dr P Forster
Organiser: Wrexham County Borough Council
7.00pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

DNA analysis allows researchers and scientists to trace human ancestry from the origin of our species nearly 200,000 years ago to the colonisation of each continent in turn from 60,000 years onwards. The techniques we and our colleagues in the field have developed can furthermore resolve much more recent events, such as uncovering a suspected adoption one or more generations ago in a family, or the identification and geographic origin of skeletal remains in forensic cases. This lecture will present an overview of these topics and present some case studies.

Joseph Priestley: Leading British Scientist and Thinker - and His Connections with Wrexham |
Professor Peter Excell, Glynd ˆwr University
Organiser: Glyndŵr University
7:30pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

Joseph Priestley is best-known as one of the discoverers of oxygen. However, that was only a relatively minor part of the rather amazing spread of work that he undertook in his very rich life. His science textbook remained a classic for over a hundred years and it included the very first statement of the law of electrostatic force, now known as Coulomb’s law, which is the foundation of much of modern electronics and communications technologies, as well as being a key building block in the understanding of matter. He undertook many experiments, particularly on sparks in gases, and this led on to an interest in the properties of gases. This interest in turn led to his discovery of carbon dioxide and then of oxygen.

As well as having a temperament that tended to court controversy, Priestley also had a minor speech impediment and the result was that his career as a minister of religion was in the doldrums until he moved to Nantwich, where he soon became acquainted with the famous Wilkinson family of ironmasters from Bersham, near Wrexham. They seem to have given him encouragement, but, more importantly, he married a daughter from the family, who was his lifelong source of strength and his career ‘took off’ from this point.

The lecture is fully illustrated and emphasises the excitement of the period, putting it in context with turbulent times in political events and a rapid pace of developments in science and technology.

This event is suitable for adults and children aged 13+.

Bomb, Book and Compass: The Chinese Invented Them First.
Dr Stan Moore, Glynd ˆwr University
Organiser: Glyndŵr University, supported by Royal Society of Chemistry, North Wales Section
7:30pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

Dr Moore will talk about the work of Cambridge-based Professor Joseph Needham who, from about 1945 and over a period of about 50 years, studied the history of science, technology and civilisation in China, leading to the production of 24 large, detailed volumes including, civil, maritime, water and mechanical engineering, agriculture, warfare, printing, mathematics, astronomy, medicine and much more. The remarkable conclusion of this study was that, contrary to popular belief, we in Europe were centuries behind the Chinese, who first discovered and invented over half the basic modern technologies on which we have come to rely. The results of his studies surprised even the Chinese who, for reasons unclear, appeared to lose this spirit of innovation from about 1500 to recent times. Happily, that enterprising spark has now returned.

Why Do Some Streetlights Shine Yellow?
Matthew Eagles, Glynd ˆwr University
Organiser: Glyndŵr University
7:00pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

Yellow light around Wrexham has been a familiar sight for decades and yet few people know anything about the type of streetlight involved — how they work and why they are used? Why do they give out yellow light? Why do they appear red when they switch on? Your chance to find out the answers is provided in this presentation intended for those people who are interested or just curious. A deMontration will be given of working lanterns.

Matthew Eagles has a long-standing interest in this particular type of streetlight and he has appeared on radio and TV in connection with the subject. With a degree in Applied Physics he is well-positioned to understand the science involved, and he also has a small personal collection of streetlights that have been taken out of public service.

4000 Years in 400 Pages
Patricia Fara
Organiser: Glyndŵr University
7:00pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

How do you fit 4000 years of science into 400 pages? For over twenty years, historians of science have been wondering how to tackle this ‘big picture’ problem. Now Patricia Fara has provided a solution – Science: A Four Thousand Year History (which will be published in Mar by Oxford University Press). In this talk, she discusses three of the big questions she had to confront while she was writing her book – When did science begin? Who did science? How does science change? Some of her answers may be unexpected. Patricia Fara has a degree in physics from Oxford, and a PhD in the History of Science from London. At Cambridge, she lectures in the History and Philosophy of Science Department, and is Senior Tutor of Clare College. Her major research specialty is eighteenth-century England, but she has published a range of academic and popular books on the history of science, including Newton: The Making of Genius; Sex, Botany and Empire; and Pandora’s Breeches: Women, Science and Power. She has a particular interest in scientific pictures, and her books and talks are always based around illustrations. Fara has appeared in several TV and radio programmes, and features regularly on Melvyn Bragg’s In Our Time. She has written many articles for journals including Nature, Science, Endeavour, Times Higher Education Supplement and History Today.

The Sun, Moon and Earth Show: an Overview of Renewable Energy
John Rodway, Centre for Research, Education and Training in Energy (CREAT E)
Organiser: Glyndŵr University
7:00pm Glyndŵr University, Plas Coch Site, Wrexham

A spaceship has just beaten off an attack by aliens. Its energy banks are dangerously low. Where is it going to get enough energy to recharge them? The answers given by science fiction writers and real scientists/engineers are often very different. This is the point of lift-off for an investigation into renewable energy.

The Sun, Moon and Earth show uses models and enactments to explain where renewable energy comes from and outlines how it can be harnessed. The key benefits of this so-called “green energy” are discussed, together with its role in reducing climate change. It links science, technology and geography with social issues and responsibilities in ways that involve humour and audience participation.

John Rodway uses all his experience as a teacher and science communicator and his interest in wildlife conservation and environmental interpretation to help him engage and entertain his audience about renewable energy and what it means for the future.
This event is suitable for adults and children aged 8+.

Colour holography is the most accurate imaging technology known to science. It is now possible to produce 3D holographic images for display that are almost indistinguishable from the original object or scene. In this presentation an overview of the colour holographic recording techniques will be provided. The current status of colour holography based on Denisyuk’s single-beam technique is presented including the rendition of colour in a hologram along with reviewing the recording materials for such holograms.

The number of applications of this 3D display technique have increased and it is now possible to record artefacts in full color for museums and for other display purposes, e.g. advertising, art and documentation. The major advantages of holographic reproduction are discussed together with its limitations. Samples of recently recorded colour holograms will be on display during the presentation. You will not fail to be wowed!

Hans I. Bjelkhagen, professor of Interferential Imaging Sciences at Glyndŵr University, received his PhD degree in 1978 from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He has worked in many fields of holography. He is the author of Silver-Halide Recording Materials for Holography and has published over 100 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. In 2001 he was awarded the RPS Saxby Medal for his work in holography.
