The World according to Physics with Jim Al-Khalili

Shining a light on the most profound insights revealed by modern physics, Jim Al-Khalili invites us all to understand what this crucially important science tells us about the universe and the nature of reality itself.

In this talk, Jim's will introduce the fundamental concepts of space, time, energy, and matter, and then describes the three pillars of modern physics—quantum theory, relativity, and thermodynamics—showing how all three must come together if we are ever to have a full understanding of reality.

Able to make even the most enigmatic scientific ideas accessible, you will be captivated by this talk as you listen to Jim explain why physics matters to everyone and calls one and all to share in the profound adventure of seeking truth in the world around us.

The talk will be followed by a Q+A session hosted by New Scientist and a book signing.
