Event description

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki is a curious and optimistic Australian radio and TV presenter and author. Join him for a whirlwind tour of incredible science facts, figures and fascinations in his third annual visit to the Ri. Explore questions like: “Who put that Nuclear Reactor in Africa 2 billion years ago? Coffee seems to be good for you – but what about other “substances”? Why is there probably Life on a moon of Saturn, what is the shortest scientific paper ever written, and how did we tip the Earth off its Spin Axis?” in this whistle stop tour of some of the world’s most exciting science.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 12+.
