Death might not be certain, though taxes, probably are. In the first Linnean Society Student Lecture of the year, featuring immortal jelly fish, the world's slowest bacteria and the cast of Alice through the Looking Glass, Simon Watt delves into the surprising science behind why we die, and what the alternatives might be. Come satisfy your morbid curiosity.
Simon is a biologist, writer and science communicator, perhaps best known for presenting the BAFTA-winning documentary series Inside Nature’s Giants and the Channel 4 special The Elephant: Life After Death. His new book “The Ugly Animals: We Can’t All be Pandas” is available now.
Tickets are free. Please register through the Linnean Society website.
