Margaret Burbridge Symposium

I received an email advertising a symposium celebrating the life and work of the late Eleanor Margaret Burbridge, pioneer of nuclear astrophysics.  The invitation to attend (online) is open, and I copy the email below with details of the event next week.  The image is a stylish representation of Prof Burbridge, from the linked-to website below:
