Lecture Theatre 3
Herschel Building
University of Newcastle

Speakers: Dr Mark Lewney, UK Intellectual Property Office, Wales

This mind-expanding and ear-stimulating lecture will reveal how:
* Rock guitars make their distictive sounds;
* String vibrations might answer questions about the Big Bang;
* The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – the biggest experiment ever built – might let us peek into extra dimensions;
* To think about multiple dimensions, with the help of expert guitar playing.
Dr Lewney, winner of the first NESTA FameLab competition in 2005, will share the wonder and excitement of how innovative experiments using the LHC at CERN will let us glimpse what the universe was like in its first
trillionth of a second and may even help us to discover the origins and nature of matter.
Tea and biscuits will normally be served 30 minutes before the meeting.
Non-members and guests are welcome to attend.
