Star Trek Tech: What’s Real?
Join Dr Paul Dalgarno as we look into replicators, warp speed and other Star Trek tech and see what’s real in the current world of Physics.
A little bit science, a little bit Star Trek and a whole lot of fun!
Costumes are encouraged but not mandatory.
Paul Dalgarno is a physicist, and the Director of Learning and Teaching in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences. He is also a massive Star Trek and sci-fi fan in general, and that passion has shaped and heavily inspired his career. It led him to study quantum physics and quantum optics as an early career researcher, before moving into the fields of microscopy and biophysics where he works at the interface between biology, chemistry, and physics. He’s particularly interested in light and what can be learnt from biological systems by using the complex properties of light as a probe and sensor. He is passionate about discussing physics and science with anyone who will listen, and also all things with aliens and space ships in them.
A small number of concession tickets are available. Please contact the museum directly for more information.
The event is part of the museum’s Places of Science Project funded by The Royal Society.
