Astrophysicist Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell talks about the way poetry has inspired and influenced her work with readings from some of her favorite poems. Jocelyn discovered pulsars, a new type of super-dense star, in 1967 and recently edited the Gulbenkian Foundation's anthology "Dark Matter: Poems of Space" with Maurice Riordan - a project which included pairing contemporary poets with astronomers to produce new works. Her talk is accompanied by a short play from Honeysuckle Direction.
