Swindon Festival of Literature
Thu 4 May
BRIAN CLEGG – with an illustrated talk on life, the universe, and everything!
Once, we sought absolutes, certainties, and facts to explain the world around us. But as science has developed, relativity has swept away many of those certainties, leaving only a handful of unchangeable essentials: absolute zero, nothingness, and light. As a result, is science better now and is it taking us closer to the essence of being human?
Author of numerous books, broadcaster, editor of popularscience.co.uk, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Brian Clegg has now written The Reality Frame, which takes the reader on a fascinating journey from empty space all the way to the human mind.
