Speakers: Prof. Frank Close

Just as Bruno Pontecorvo was about to come to
Liverpool in 1950, instead he disappeared through
the Iron Curtain. Why this discoverer of the key to
nuclear reactors and weapons fled so suddenly has
been a mystery for 65 years. Frank Close now gives
the answers, tells how Pontecorvo missed a Nobel
Prize due to being in the USSR, and reveals the
seminal role of the infamous Kim Philby.

Tea and coffee available from 18:00.

All are welcome.
