"Black Holes, Exoplanets and Hurricanes. Making the next generation of Discoveries" Some of the most interesting astrophysical discoveries of the past decade have come from partnerships with the public via citizen science. These discoveries include a new class of galaxies, light echoes around supermassive black holes that extend tens of thousands of light years, extrasolar planet systems that challenge our theories of how planetary systems evolve, and more. The insights and algorithms developed as a result of these discoveries are changing our understanding of the Universe as well as helping us in more practical ways here on Earth, including more accurate measures of climate change and delivering practical help to first responders in the aftermath of major natural disasters. Glasgow Science Centre is proud to host the David Elder Lectures in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Department of Physics.
