(L) Paul Hill - Where is everyone? Answering Fermi's Paradox. (or not)

Paul Hill BA(hons) PGCE FRAS

An elected fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, co-presenter and writer of the popular Awesome Astronomy podcast, committee member of the world famous Baker Street Irregular Astronomers and has appeared on BBC News and Radio to discuss a range of astronomy and space issues as well as being interviewed on The BBC’s flagship astronomy program, The Sky At Night.  He is also part of the team that runs the bi-annual, family friendly AstroCamp in the Brecon Beacons. Pauls mission is to take astronomy education into schools and the wider community, enthusing children and adults alike about the universe around us.

Paul will take us on a journey through cosmology, the life and death of stars, life on Earth and what it tells us about what is potentially the ultimate question. 
It will cover a little of the original topic that Prof Rawlings was going to cover, but very briefly and will go in a different direction and be thought provoking so as to leave the door open for the original lecture at a later date.
And no, the answer is not 42.
