This is the second in our pilot series of hybrid astronomy talks.

Space-based telescopes, why do we spend billions to put a telescope in space? Lightweight mirrors, what are they and why are they useful? Wasp nests, what we can learn from our insect engineering colleagues about how design future lightweight mirrors for space
