Observatory Unlocked

Enjoy a range of public talks and activities delivered by our Observatory Explainers, ranging from short talks on the hidden stories of the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, to solar observing and hands on science demonstrations.

Our team of Observatory Explainers can answer your burning questions about astronomy such as: why do we need dark matter to explain the universe and how do astronomers know that space is expanding?

Foundation Astrophysics - SOLD OUT

Our foundation astrophysics programme is an opportunity to study without the cost of accreditation or the pressure of examinations, but require knowledge of basic science and algebra.

While these courses are not formally accredited, students are assessed through coursework and receive certificates of achievement from the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, on the completion of all modules. There are six ten-week modules in the programme that run over two years, which do not have to be studied in order.

Tutor: Roger O’ Brien.
