13 Journeys Through Space and Time: Christmas Lectures from the Royal Institution

Started at the Ri in 1825 by Michael Faraday, the CHRISTMAS LECTURES have been broadcast on television since the 1960s and have formed part of the British Christmas tradition for generations. First devised to attract young people to the magic of science through spectacular demonstrations, they are now watched by millions of people around the world every year.

Drawing on the incredible archive here at the Ri, which is packed full of handwritten notebooks, photographs and transcripts, this book will focus on 13 of the most captivating lectures given at the Ri on space and time, taking a look at what we thought we knew then and what has been discovered since. Ri Members and Patrons receive 50% off 13 Journeys Through Space and Time: Christmas Lectures from the Royal Institution by Colin Stuart when buying the book at the Ri.  

Bloomsbury Books

Ri Members and Patrons can receive a 25% discount and free postage on two newly released titles from Bloomsbury Books.

Furry Logic explores the mysteries of the animal world. Why do dogs slurp from their drinking bowls while cats lap up water with a delicate flick of the tongue? How does a tiny turtle hatchling from Florida circle the entire northern Atlantic before returning to the very beach where it was born? And how can a Komodo dragon kill a water buffalo with a bite only as strong as a domestic cat’s? These puzzles, and many more besides, are all explained by physics. From heat and light to electricity and magnetism, Furry Logic unveils the ways that more than 30 animals exploit physics to eat, drink, mate and dodge death in their daily battle for survival.
