BrisScience is back for 2022! We can't wait to explore the wonders of science with you this year.

This month, we're back at home, as COVID-19 has again hampered our efforts to present at The Edge, but we hope to return to in-person events as soon as possible. In the meantime, get comfy and join us on the hunt for exoplanets.

For decades, astronomers have searched for planets outside our solar system using radio telescopes, but no clear detections have been made... until now.

Join us to hear from UQ astrophysicist Dr Benjamin Pope, whose team recently detected 19 red dwarf stars using the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) radio telescope in Europe, then discovered four orbiting planets from their magnetic fields interacting with their stars.
