Universe, will you kill us?

Lenka Zychova

Space Weather Scientist

Asteroids and dinosaurs are not best friends. You know about this. But is that it? Is an asteroid impact the only threat from the universe? What about exploding supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, black holes, or even our own Sun? Explore the variety of ways the universe can kill us, or at least give us some proper hard time. Prepare your mobile phones or laptops because you will decide where the lecture goes by live voting.
