Part of the RSGS Inspiring People talks programme. Drawn to Fire by Christopher Horsley. 21st September 2:15 – 2:45pm.
Having explored some of the most active volcanoes in the world, adventurer Christopher Horsley is drawn to the fires that created our planet. Capturing the beauty of these naturally destructive creators has led him closer to the edge of volcanic craters around the world than most people would dare. From abseiling over 400 meters to collect fresh lava samples from some of the most inaccessible places in the world to encountering armed rebels on volcanic slopes, for his recent TV series, ‘Exploration Volcano’ for BBC Earth, Chris works closely with Congolese volcanologists to supply and install live-stream monitoring cameras and produce 3D models of these ever changing environments.
Tickets £10, free for RSGS members, students and U18s. Book here.
Venue address: University of Edinburgh, Lecture Theatre A, 40 George Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9JX
