Solstice Seminars at the European Lunar Symposium: The Cutting Edge of Lunar Exploration 

The European Lunar Symposium (ELS) is the premier Moon-focussed meeting in Europe, attracting experts from across the world to discuss the latest developments in science and exploration of the Moon. The European Lunar Symposium 2024 is taking place at The Crichton in Dumfries in June. 

The Crawick Multiverse Trust is delighted to be one of the many local partners working with The Open University in Scotland to support the delivery of ELS in Dumfries and Galloway in 2024 (See blog for details)

As part of the ELS 2024 programme in Dumfries and Galloway, The Crawick Multiverse Trust is delighted to co-host an evening event for the public at The Crichton on Thursday 20th June. This will take the form of a Solstice Seminar, which follows on from the inaugural Solstice Seminar co-hosted by both organisations in Sanquhar Town Hall in June 2023.

Solstice Seminar: Thursday 20th June 2024

Taking place on the day of Summer Solstice 2024 – the day of the year when the Sun reaches its northernmost position as seen from the Earth – the 2024 Solstice Seminar will take place at Easterbrook Hall on Thursday 20th June.

The speakers at this public event are all leaders in space science. They are at the forefront of exploration of the Earth’s Moon and are European Lunar Symposium delegates. Through the talks and discussions at this event, they will share their experiences behind the scenes of lunar explorations, including the history of private companies being involved in space travel, and the significance of searching for water on the Moon.

  • Bethany Elman,  Principal Investigator of NASA’s Lunar Trailblazer
  • Tim Crane, Chief Technology Officer at Intuitive Machines

Starting with a drinks reception in the Crichton Memorial Church, attendees will then be led to the Easterbrook Hall (within 5-minutes walking distance) for the talks and panel discussion.

// 18:30-20:00: Drinks reception, Crichton Memorial Church
