    Hugh Hubbard, Katie Barr, Steve Bannister, John Waterhouse & Chris Bem

    5 guest speakers will each give a short (but perfectly formed) presentation on their own scientific theory. You will be able to ask questions and debate with all of them. In one evening, 5 topics, covering different areas of science, will be distilled and delivered in small but powerful measures.

    Speakers and topics:

    Hugh Hubbard - Why the Large Hadron Collider IS responsible for the global financial crash.
    Katie Barr - Quantum computing
    Steve Bannister - Supernovae: the biggest bangs since the Big Bang.
    John Waterhouse - Cosmology: consensus or conspiracy?
    Chris Bem - The Three Sciences: re-framing science for a better world

    Led by Professor Greg Raddick and Associate Professor Bruce Turnbull, both of Leeds University

    In memory of Duncan Dallas, the founder of Cafe Scientifique (who sadly died in 2014), we will hold a discussion meeting on Science Communication, a subject on which he was a leading thinker.
    Everyone who comes along will be encouraged to participate. The discussion will initially be led by Professor Greg Raddick and Associate Professor Bruce Turnbull, both of Leeds University.
