Rather a quiet week for science events. Let me know if I’ve missed anything.
Chiropractor-conquering Simon Singh comes to Kingston Market House to talk about the use of alternative medicines on the NHS. The talk starts at 7pm and is organised by the South West London Humanists.
The second London Science Question Time takes place at UCL’s Wilkins Old Refectory and is themed around science education. Nature Network will be there to report on proceedings. The free event begins at 6.30pm.
Over at the Royal Society, astronaut Piers Sellars will be in conversation with playwright Rona Munro and scientist John Zarnecki. This free event will also be webcast live for those who can’t make it.
The Royal Society’s lunchtime lecture looks back on the life of Frederick Gowland Hopkins (1861-1947), discoverer of vitamins and one of the founders of biochemistry. The talk accompanies a small exhibition about Hopkins currently running at the RS.
