International athletes push their bodies to the limit in their bid to break records.
To have a hope of beating themselves and others they must be both talented in, and dedicated to, their chosen sports. But would they really smash so many records without the help of Materials Scientists?
This talk will explore three seemingly mundane polymeric materials - polyurethane, carbon fibre and tendon - that have made 'Faster, Higher, Stronger' an exciting, and sometimes controversial, reality in recent years.
Lecture begins at 19:30. Free car parking near the lecture theatre.
