24 hours of talks on life, the universe and everything, in memory of Dr Tim Richardson (Physics & Astronomy, University of Sheffield).  We've got physicists talking about cosmic rays, exoplanets, aviation security, industrial strategy, medical diagnosis, asking how weird the earth is, exploring the politics of particles.  Featuring Professor Richard Jones, Dr Matthew Malek, Professor Simon Goodwin, Professor Lee Thompson, Dr Ed Daw, Jost Migenda, Dr Ben Jones and Dr Richard Parker.  And there's more - speakers from across the University on topics including brain development, robotics, social and criminal justice, Donald Trump and migration. 

 

From 5 pm on Thursday 19 April to 5 pm on Friday 20 April, with live music, a pop-up radio station and 24-hour boardgaming alongside the lecture programme.  Refreshments available throughout. Tickets on the door: £10 (£7 concession) for access to the full 24 hours, plus a complementary hot drink and bun!
