This Funzing Experience:

Are you intrigued by the Universe and want to make more sense of it all? Fascinated by the headlines about Mars exploration, dark matter, and black holes but not sure how it all fits together? Then join award-winning author & science journalist Dr Stuart Clark for an illuminating introduction to the cosmos and how we make sense of it.

The Universe is a fascinating place, full of exotic objects and phenomena. From the earliest times, humans have felt drawn to the night sky and the quest to make sense of it all.

Although the terminology can be bewildering, especially after telescopes began to reveal the full array of celestial objects, the truth is that the underlying principles of the universe are remarkably simple.

Dr Stuart Clark has spent his entire career understanding the universe and explaining it to a lay audience. This talk will introduce the Universe in a series of steps, looking first at the planets, then at the stars, and finally at the wider universe. Finally it will touch on how the universe began and how it may end.

Venue: The Tokenhouse

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
