Atoms in the Void

Speakers: Dr Ian Saunders

Richard Feynman was asked what single idea would be the best help to revive science after a new Dark Age, and the message he chose to pass on was just, "Everything is made of Atoms."

The concept of the atom and its modelling have been a significant thread in the development of modern science, from the speculations of Greek philosophers, through early chemistry, the kinetic theory of gases,
the structure of matter, to the early applications of quantum mechanics and the technology of today.

Some of that story is explored in this talk, which tries to look behind the simplistic treatments of the textbooks at what really happened and at some of the forgotten ideas and people along the way.

Refreshments from 18:30 talk at 19:00.
