Speakers: Alok Jha,, Guardian Science Correspondent

From predictions of sin, fire and brimstone in ancient stories, to asteroids, viruses and climate change in films today, the human race has long speculated - and dramatized - about how it will all end. Yet no matter how creative our stories are, science, Alok Jha will tell us, offers us even weirder possibilities.
Alok Jha is a science correspondent for the Guardian newspaper, and presenter of their Science Weekly podcast. He graduated with a degree in physics from Imperial College, London. His talk will be based on his recent popular science book “The Doomsday Handbook: 50 Ways to the End of the World,” published by Quercus.
