Well-known astronomer, author and ABC radio identity, Fred Watson is welcomed to the WEA to present his charismatic seminars titled 'Why is Uranus Upside Down?' and 'From the Peruvian Desert to the Universe'.
Over the past few years, robotic spacecraft from earth have made ever deeper forays in the eld of planetary exploration. We now have unprecedented insight into the geological history of Mars, and astonishing new surveys of the bizarre moons of Saturn. Moreover, we stand on the brink of exciting new discoveries from Mercury, Venus, Mars and, in a few years' time, Pluto. What is driving this feverish activity to understand the nature of the solar system? Using the latest amazing images from Mars, Saturn and other corners of the sun's family, Fred Watson spells out the motivation for these investigations... and reveals just why Uranus is upside down.
