Event description

PLEASE NOT THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. We are in the process of contacting ticket holders about refunds. We hope we can find a new date for this event later in 2020.

Physics is a crucially important science that tells us about the Universe and the nature of reality itself.

This talk explores the fundamental concepts of space, time, energy, and matter, and describes the three pillars of modern physics, quantum theory, relativity, and thermodynamics.

Join Jim Al-Khalili for the most profound insights revealed by modern physics.

About the speaker

Jim Al-Khalili has presented The Life Scientific on Radio 4 since 2011. Although his ‘day job’ is as an academic professor of physics at the University of Surrey, where he also has a chair in the public engagement in science, he has achieved wider prominence as a public scientist, author and broadcaster. He has fronted a number of radio and television documentaries, mainly on BBC4, including Chemistry: A Volatile History, which was nominated for a BAFTA in 2010.  

Timing

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers will be admitted into the gallery.

Book signing

Copies of Jim's book, 'The World According to Physics', will be available for purchase and signing after the talk.
