JEFFREY WEEKS: THE SHAPE OF SPACE
When we look out on a clear night, the universe seems infinite. Yet this infinity might be an illusion. In Jeffrey Weeks’ talk this Thursday he will use computer games to introduce the concept of a “multi-connected universe”, followed by interactive 3D graphics to take the viewer on a tour of several possible shapes for space. Finally, we’ll see how recent satellite data provides tantalizing clues to the true shape of our universe. The only prerequisites for this talk are curiosity and imagination. Jeffrey Weeks is an international speaker, a master of exposition in topology and geometry, he is a versatile and productive designer of computer software for investigating knots, spaces, tessellations, and geometry across all dimensions.
Tickets are €5 – don’t miss out – book your tickets here today:

BURN CALORIES, NOT CARBON – GAVIN HARTE
How many people does it take to power a light bulb?
In this first ever human powered event at Science Gallery Gavin Harte, in association with the EPA, will present his unique talk on climate change and energy. A people-powered electricity station will be connected to bicycles and the audience will pedal to provide power for the talk. If the audience stops, so does the show!
