We are really excited to have Professor Percival along to give us a talk at our Christmas lecture. I'm sure you will agree, this meeting promises to finish the year off in style and is a lecture not to be missed!

Will is the Professor of Cosmology at the University of Portsmouth and is one of the UK's top scientists. As well as being involved in numerous research areas, he is also on some of the top panels in space exploration.
