An inspiring all-ages introduction to the wonders of science from two of the most accessible science communicators writing today. From real-life alien hunters to Egyptian mummies to a 2000-year old computer, our panellists will turn the microscope on an extraordinary world.
Jo Marchant has written for Nature and New Scientist and has a PhD in genetics and microbiology; she is the author of Decoding the Heavens, The Shadow King and Cure.
Ben Miller tried to swap science for comedy, but science followed him – his love of physics led him to write It’s Not Rocket Science, which is now a TV series; his latest book is The Aliens are Coming!
