600 People Ed2016

‘600 People’ is an hour-long lecture which will blow your mind! Is there extraterrestrial intelligence or are we completely alone and insignificant, as predicts Fermi’s paradox? It might be a terrifying concept for some people to face, but I found it very relaxing and exciting. In the mist of neoliberalism, we forget our scientific composition and the fact that we are all, in the end, only atoms. We forget the other fascinating species that live around us. Alexander Kelly manages to make science interesting, making complex concepts feel straightforward and the bursts of humour make the information easily digestible. If you’re ready, ‘600 People’ is going to change the way you understand the universe and our place in it.

Summerhall, until 29 Aug.
