To me, “Quantum Physics,” and, “beginners,” don’t often find themselves in the same room. I consider myself a ‘beginner’ at most things – and thinking about time, and the universe, and black holes usually scares me. But we’re not to worry, as Dr. Michael Brooks is here to hold our hands and gently guide us down the astral path.
If you can only watch about 5 minutes of Brian Cox without entering a deep existential crisis, this might be the perfect event for you to finally get your teeth into physics.
Science writer Dr. Michael Brooks is famous for explaining the quirks and oddities of quantum physics to the general population. He holds a PHD in the subject, is the co-host of the award-winning podcast Science(ish) alongside Rick Edwards, and was the first person to be tasered in the UK. No question will go unanswered in the Q&A!
Do you know your protons from your electrons and your up quarks from your down quarks? Have you ever wondered how a quantum computer is made? Does time truly exist? String theory: is it really about strings? Discover all this and more in Fever’s illuminating talk.
