Summer Series 2019
As part of their 2019 summer series, The Cosmic Shambles Network are delighted to be presenting two shows in June in the iconic lecture theatre of The Royal Institution. Tickets for both events are below.
June 17th – Stories from science in the background: Science Shambles live
We’ll be recording an episode of our popular podcast, Science Shambles.
The title of this episode is The type of science stories that make the mainstream headlines are usually those that feature big, flashy discoveries or something that means we can spend a few hours pretending we found aliens. But what about that long running research that’s taking place in background. Not in any sinister way, it’s just happily taking small steps and quietly changing the world, it just never gets a bold, all caps ‘A-HA’ headline moment. Well The Cosmic Shambles Network are putting that science front and centre for a special evening at the Ri with a live recording of their popular Science Shambles podcast. Hosted by Helen Czerski and with a panel featuring Lucie Green, Suzi Gage and more find out more about some of the most exciting, under-reported science happening in the world today. Tickets here.
June 26th – Scientific expeditions to the Arctic
Helen Czerski will discuss how she spent last summer on an icebreaker close to the North Pole, on an expedition to study Arctic weather. It’s a weird environment to live in, but coming home wasn’t straightforward either. It’s a tale of ice and bears and ships… and the evolution of a small village. Proudly presented by The Cosmic Shambles Network. Tickets here.
