Ever wondered what time actually is? We can’t see it, hear it, taste it or touch it – so what do we even mean when we say that Tuesday happens before Wednesday? Join us on a journey though the last hundred years of the physics of time, as we travel from Einstein’s breakthrough theory to the ideas proposed by contemporary physicists – is time linear, cyclical, or even granular? There will be a real-life scientist, a philosopher, and plenty of flashy props. (Lasts approximately 30 minutes, whatever that means…) This event is free and no booking is required.
