Talk Title: “Exploring the dynamic Universe"

Further Information about his talk

The Universe is a dynamic, ever-changing place full of extremes – from Black Holes to asteroids, massive exploding stars to elusive distant planets. Recent developments in robotic technology have allowed astronomers to build high-tech telescopes that allow them to observe changes in the universe on timescales from seconds to years, all without leaving comfort of their homes or offices. So, how are astronomers using these new methods to explore the universe? And how can you help?
