The Science of Rick & Morty – Funzing talk

November 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Rick Edwards, writer and television presenter, and Michael Brooks, best selling author and science advisor, for a wormhole of talk that looks to explore the truths behind the hit TV show, Rick and Morty – Wubalubadubdub!
In the cult cartoon series Rick and Morty, a crazed, abusive old scientist takes his grandson on high-risk adventures in the multiverse. This is where they encounter alien worlds, strange copies of themselves and a generally infinite array of different possible lives – and deaths.
So, is there anything to these wild rides through alternative dimensions of space and time? That’s what TV presenter Rick Edwards and science writer Dr Michael Brooks have decided to find out.

In this light-hearted, interactive show, they’ll be discussing why quantum physicists and cosmologists believe in alternate universes, whether we can reach them, and revealing just how far you’d have to travel to reach the nearest copy of yourself.

Rick Edwards is a writer and television presenter. He has a Natural Sciences degree from Cambridge but only dimly recalls it. Dr Michael Brooks is author of the bestselling 13 Things That Don’t Make Sense and a consultant for New Scientist magazine. Together they host the award-winning podcast Science(ish)
Venue: Hen & ChickenDoors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
