Scholarship recipients were recently given the opportunity to hear about the Rosetta Space Mission from one of the leading scientists on the project.

Dr Taylor (MPhys Physics 1997) is a University of Liverpool alumni and an astrophysicist best known for his involvement in the landing of Philae lander spacecraft on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In an exclusive Q&A session for the University of Liverpool’s Physics Society, students were able to meet Dr Taylor and ask about his involvement in the mission so far.

Adam Dad is a first year Astrophysics student and a recipient of an undergraduate scholarship.  He said of the experience: “It was so interesting to meet Matt. I really enjoyed seeing someone who was a student at our university working on something that is so inspiring and motivational.”
