We will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.


What is matter really made of? How does the stuff around us escape annihilation in the fearsome heat of the Big Bang? And will we ever be able to understand the very first moments of our universe?

Using the latest experimental data from the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva and labs and observatories around the world, including a neutrino detector buried a kilometre under an Italian mountain to a gravitational wave detector nestled in the humid pine forest of Louisiana, particle physicist Harry Cliff will reveal what the newest findings tell us about the the fundamental ingredients of matter and their origins.

Harry's latest book, How to make an apple pie from scratch, is available from Pan Macmillan (UK), Amazon (international) and all good bookshops.


Harry Cliff is a particle physicist at the University of Cambridge working on the LHCb experiment, a huge particle detector buried 100 metres underground at CERN near Geneva. He is a member of an international team of around 1400 physicists, engineers and computer scientists who are using LHCb to study the basic building blocks of our universe, in search of answers to some of the biggest questions in modern physics.

ticket   Royal Society: London: Science City 2021
Wed 25 Aug 2021 - 19:30 to 20:45

Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe invite you to this free Royal Society talk titled "London: Science City 2021"

The talk is being live streamed on the Royal Society YouTube Channel:


Science City 1550 - 1800: The Linbury Gallery tells the story of how London grew to become a global hub for scientific and technological innovation, but where does it stand in 2021?

In collaboration with the Science Museum, the Royal Society has assembled a panel of experts to examine that question in this free virtual event. Together they will explore how London’s role as a “Science City” has evolved to adapt to a world in which global collaboration is so much more prevalent than in the days of the likes of Newton, Hooke and Wren. 

The panel will also look to identify some of the challenges and opportunities presented by such seismic issues as Brexit, a green recovery from the pandemic and advances in Artificial Intelligence and engineering.
