Event description

Description

What is the colour of an electron? Why is gold a golden colour? How do electrons relate to 'Pirates of the Caribbean', carrots, and the colour of dinosaurs? How does the world look to the crazy eyes of the mantis shrimp? Come on an electrifying journey that will join the astonishing (and often tenuous) dots between light, electrons and the workings of our colourful universe. But wait… what is an electron again?

Please note that unlike his previous talks at the Ri, this event is aimed at an adult audience. For young people that are keen to see Dr Karl, he will be back at the Ri in December.

Copies of Dr Karl's books will be available for purchase and signing after the talk.

Discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.

By booking to attend events at the Royal Institution, you confirm that you have read and agree to the Ri's event terms and conditions.
