Diamonds in Space at Green Man Festival

Kerry Whittlesea

During mid-august, the CDT teamed up with Aberystwyth University Physics Department again to put on the very successful ‘Diamonds in Space’ stand at the family and environmentally friendly Green Man festival.

Festival goers headed over to ‘Einstein’s Garden’ where the stand was based to learn all about where diamonds can be found in space using VR technology. They were also invited to come and have a chat with real diamond scientists whilst having their faces painted. Over the course of the 4-day festival, 900 visitors visited the stand.
