Live from Jodrell Bank: The Transmissions, are a series of one day shows taking place on an outdoor stage in the shadow of the iconic Lovell Telescope at The University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank Observatory.
Previous Transmissions featuring The Flaming Lips & Elbow have been national award winning for innovation and creativity. Featuring a diverse array of internationally renowned musical artists alongside interactive science activities organized by Jodrell Bank with projections on the 76 meter high Lovell Telescope, it’s a show like no other.
NLSI’s CLSE team has worked hard to develop both a strong national and international program in science, exploration, training, and E/PO. Their international partners in the UK recently participated in the Jodrell Bank LIVE music and science festival, which drew about 10,000 people. CLSE team scientists worked with international partners and outreach professionals to set up a tent at the event that featured lunar and meteorite (asteroid) science.
On the U.K. side, one of the former NLSI-CLSE postdocs, Dr. Katherine Joy, provided some of the scientific expertise in the tent with other colleagues from the University of Manchester. In particular, Dr. Sarah Crowther did a lot of the heavy lifting and organized several academic staff, post-docs, PhD students, and undergraduate students who helped with the activity.
