“Ten Great Ways to Die – The Science and Chances of the End of Mankind”
This talk takes a pragmatic but light-hearted look at a variety of scenarios from the astronomical to the theoretical, the biological to the technological, by which it is commonly believed that mankind as a species could be rendered extinct. Weighing up the chances of occurrence against the probability of total devastation, we come to understand just how lucky we are to have had the chance to evolve as we have, and the implications for our future.
There will be a break for refreshments and an update on recent astronomy news.
Members £2, non members £3.
