#WayOutThere on Facebook Live

Join us Wednesdays in January for our interview series on distant galaxies, the beginnings of the universe and new space
Our new Facebook Live Series, Way Out There, kicks off on 9 January

Stayed tuned to Aalto’s Facebook feed this month: we’re bringing you some of the most compelling research touching the place we call outer space. From unexpected radio emissions to space junk and beyond, our #WayOutThere series will have you thinking not only about where everything began, but also where we are going.
