According to our best theories of physics, the fundamental building blocks of matter are not particles, but continuous fluid-like substances known as 'quantum fields'. David Tong will explain what we know about these fields, and how they fit into our understanding of the Universe. He'll cover topics from the Big Bang to the latest developments in particle physics from CERN.Please note there is a smart dress code for this event.
