Einstein and the Big Bang, with Simon Singh
Thursday May 26 from 6pm
Join ABC science personalities Bernie Hobbs (New Inventors) and Paul Willis (Catalyst) as they put writers and scientists through their paces over a drink or three.
How was the universe created? What does it look like now? How will it all end? Is there more than one universe? UK writer and broadcaster Simon Singh answers the big questions in his new book Big Bang. Simon will dissect and reassemble the universe with the help of two top astronomy experts Dr Matthew Colles, director, Anglo-Australian Observatory and Dr Zdenka Kuncic, black hole researcher and lecturer, Sydney University
Come along and ask questions, have a beer or a coffee, learn something while laughing and maybe tell the experts what you really think.
And while you're there, enjoy some live jazz grooves from the Azo Bell Trio to start and complete the night's fun.
Thursday May 26, music from 6pm ATYP studios, Wharf 4/5 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay
