How to grow a moon, and understanding the evolution of war and peace.

This event will include a viewing of some of our Creative Reactions artworks - art inspired by our Pint of Science speakers' research.

How to grow a moon

Dr Phil Sutton (Senior Lecturer in Astrophysics)
Most planets in our solar system have moons orbiting them. The search is on to find moons orbiting planets outside of our solar system, known as exomoons, due to their potential for supporting life. But how do moons form and end up where we find them? This talk will consider some scenarios that can lead to planets having moons, like planetary impacts and gravitational capture.

Evolution of war and peace

Prof Bino Majolo (Professor of Social Evolution)
Scientists and philosophers have debated for centuries over the peaceful or aggressive nature of humans. This talk will present work from psychology, anthropology and animal behaviour to critically evaluate the extent to which our evolutionary past explains our aggressive or peaceful tendencies.
