NEXT MEETING – 7pm (virtual doors at 6.30), 7th June 2021
At our next virtual meeting, Dr Matt Donnelly, Lead Data Scientist, UK Argo Programme (and also organizer of Kirkby SciBar) will ask the question “How Do You Observe 1.33 Billion Km3 of Ocean?”. For more info see here.
And following on from May’s very entertaining two talks by Dr Steve Barrett, he has kindly provided various links, which can be found on the blog post below.
And on a different subject, you might like to have a look at: https://stfc.ukri.org/public-engagement/activities-for-the-public/visit-daresbury-laboratory/talking-science-at-daresbury-laboratory/ A member of the staff from Daresbury Labs recently contacted us to say that they are giving monthly science talks online aimed at the general public, and asked us to let people know. The link above has details as to how to find out what’s going on. It’s worth mentioning that, in the past, Knutsford SciBar has collaborated with Daresbury at some of their open events.
And finally, something that was mentioned during in the introduction to April’s talk, Professor Sarah Bridle, who gave us two talks in 2018, the first on dark matter and dark energy, and the second on the completely different topic of food production and climate change, was recently on the BBC 4 programme The Life Scientific talking about the latter. If you missed it, the programme is still available to listen to, or to download – see: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000sqk6
**** Coronavirus ****
We hope that we will be able to return to normal meetings from September (remembering that we do not hold a SciBar in August) – watch this space!
As ever, we would like to hear any ideas for speakers, so please keep them coming.
