February 04, 2014 -- The Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB) is delighted to announce that Dallas Campbell – presenter of the BBC’s popular science programme, Bang Goes the Theory – will be delivering the Society’s annual Stoneley lecture under the title of ‘Unlocking the Secrets of the Red Planet’.
PESGB members and members of the public are invited to the Central Hall Westminster in London on 11th March 2014 at 5.30pm where Dallas will investigate the geologic opportunities offered by space exploration, specifically looking at the exploration of Mars.
Dallas Campbell will be familiar to not only viewers of Bang Goes the Theory but also the Gadget Show, Egypt’s Lost Cities, Supersized Earth and the Horizon Guide series.
His impressive amount of air time is matched by the number of air miles he accumulated visiting some the world’s most ambitious engineering projects and reporting on how human ingenuity and scientific curiosity has developed our surroundings.
The Stoneley Lecture is named after the late emeritus Professor of Petroleum Geology at Imperial College, Robert Stoneley; as is Stoneley Point which sits at the entrance to Whisky Bay, in Antarctica. It is one of the many events organised during the year by the PESGB that are designed to educate and entertain everyone about the benefits of the scientific and technical aspects of petroleum exploration.
