More than 50 people attended the 'Atoms to Galaxies' talk held at the Forum in Norwich.
The event, which was part of the Norwich Science Festival, featured talks by local astronomers and TV astronomer Mark Thompson.
It was organised by PhD student Sophie Prosolek from the Quadram Institute and brought together people who have an interest in space.
Mr Thompson's talk, 'From the Big Bang to a Pint of Beer', followed the journey of hydrogen atoms from the beginning of the universe, and the changes they went through to create the necessary chemicals needed for beer.
Experienced astronomer Dave Cooke and members of Norwich Astronomical Society also gave talks.
