© National Maritime Museum, London
Royal Museums Greenwich, Greenwich Saturday May 18 2013 16:00 - 20:00

Family-friendly (and not so very late) events at the National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory Greenwich for Museums at Night include a workshop to make a planet finder to take home and learn about the secrets of Saturn, which should be visible on the night. There are also 'Ask the Expert' sessions to find out what scientists working in astronomy and space exploration are up to, and 'From Atoms to Aliens' science sessions (4.30pm, 5.30pm 6.30pm, 7.30pm; £5 family ticket), exploring how experts think life evolved on earth and how we can search for alien worlds within our galaxy. Meanwhile, the Rupert Grint-narrated Planetarium show 'We Are Aliens' (4.15pm, 5pm, 5.45pm, 6.30pm, 7.15pm; £6.50, £4.50 concs) looks at how our understanding of life on earth guides our hunt for alien life.
