Event Name:  Joint BIS/HS lecture – First Steps to Interstellar Probes- i4is Project Glowworm
Event Description:  The lecture will explain i4is Project Glowworm – a near term low earth orbit demonstration of laser push technology. This is a first step to interstellar probes using that technology. The lecture will explain the motivation for this project, set out the history of, and physical basis for, laser propulsion, summarise the alternative means of interstellar propulsion, outline the planning for the probe and mention some other i4is work including Project Lyra, planning probes to reach interstellar objects such as 1I/’Oumuamua. The lecture will be given by John I. Davies of the Initiative & Institute for Interstellar Studies (i4is).
