Volcanoes of the Solar System Dr Andrew McGonigle Whilst earth is volcanically active, the real volcanic wonders of the solar system lie far beyond our planet. Indeed, volcanoes on Mars, Venus, The Moon and Io, to name a few locations, outstrip those of Earth in scale and vigour. This talk will provide an overview of our growing understanding of extra-terrestrial volcanism and different it is to that on Earth. $18.00 Adult $12.00 Child/Concession $50.00 Family (2 adults + 2 children) Children under 3 years of age free.
