Full event details

Science writer Marcus Chown will read from his new book What a Wonderful World, and explain the workings of the whole universe in a fun and accessible way.
If you were wondering how you can fit the whole human race into the volume of a sugar cube or why you age more slowly on lower floors of buildings than upper this is the event for you.

Astrophysicist Chown is a cosmology columnist on the New Scientist as well as publishing several science books, including Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You and We Need To Talk About Kelvin.
