'to boldly go...' exhibition opens

‘To Boldly Go …’, an outdoor exhibition of photography, sponsored by the University of Birmingham, forms a major part of Town Hall and Symphony Hall?s Sounds of Space weekend (7-9 October). Inspired by the wonders of our universe and beyond, the free exhibition is in Victoria Square until Monday 18 October.

Town Hall and Symphony Hall?s Director of Programming Paul Keene met Dr Andreas Freise and Dr Alberto Vecchio from the University of Birmingham?s School of Physics and Astronomy at the exhibition. Two of the exhibition images illustrate the work of the two scientists who are involved in the development of a NASA space mission that will study the universe by observing gravitational waves.

As well as the free exhibition, the Sounds of Space weekend offers something for everyone, from music fans and families to armchair astronomers with classical, contemporary and jazz music including premieres and new commissions, talks on alien science and space tourism and a free family day. The centrepiece of the weekend is the European premiere of The Planets- an HD Odyssey, performed by the Houston Symphony, setting Holst?s music against the dramatic backdrop of images from NASA.
