Help find the #PhysSocSpaceBalloon

Our Physics Society launched a balloon into space recently but they’ve lost the signal and can’t collect it from where it fell back to earth. 

They think it went down near Oxfordshire and might still be emitting bursts of radio signal every 5 sec at 434.65Mhz. Tweet them @PhysSocNotts if you find it!

Comic book writer kierongillen came to the Uni this week as part of the Classical Association conference. He talked about the comic book series ‘Three’ with Sparta expert Professor Stephen Hodkinson. And then he enjoyed some Abba after the conference dinner.

Our students launched a space balloon from the roof of the Physics building earlier today, and are currently chasing it around Nottingham with what looks like a piece of wood with some sticky tape on it! Because students.
