Café Scientifique

I’ll be speaking at 7pm Tuesday, 16 January, at London’s Cafe Scientifique, held at the Photographers’ Gallery near Leicester Square. I’ll expound on “Why the Universe isn’t Boring” for about 20 minutes, followed by about an hour of questions and, apparently, free beer. I’ll be talking about why there is matter rather than an even mix of matter and antimatter, why the Universe is lumpy rather than smooth — some of the things that make it an interesting place to live, or indeed possible to live at all.

By the way, the posted title, “A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe” wasn’t my idea, I promise.
