We were delighted to host Dr. Nathan Mayne from the University of Exeter on Friday last week for his lecture on ‘Aliens and the Weather’. The talk was aimed at able Y11 and VI Form students, but many of Nexus 7 and 8 opted to attend too. This fascinating talk led students through the atmospheric conditions on other planets, ending with a plea from Dr. Mayne to ensure that they are aware that we need to manage the climate of our own planet better. After the talk, Dr. Mayne was inundated with questions from the audience. Dr. Mayne was an inspirational speaker and we hope to see him here at Nexus again soon.
