ABOUT THE TALK
The universe literally encompasses everything we were, are and will be, everything we knew, know and can know. When we decide to understand the universe as a whole, new truths come to light, and unexpected perspectives illuminate our take on life.

30-Second Universe explains all the tantalising concepts, principles and theories that make up our knowledge and it explains these astrophysical answers succinctly, each entry taking only a short time to read, with further exploration flagged, and key scientists noted. This one small book sheds light on the biggest ideas, concepts and discoveries in life, in the universe, in everything.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
One of the Co-authors, Prof. Karen Masters from Haverford College will discuss some of the topics in the book and the process of writing it.

NEW TO SKEPTICS IN THE PUB OR TWITCH OR BOTH?
We anticipate that Twitch or SitP may be new for some of you so we will have *early doors at 6:45* to welcome new attendees and answer any questions you may have.

A useful guide to Twitch here: https://www.lifewire.com/what-is-twitch-4143337

You don’t need a Twitch account to watch the talk only if you want to take part in the chat.

You won’t need an account to ask questions in the Q&A though.
We will also have our online conference room available on Zoom from 6.45pm for anyone that wants to talk about the subject during and after the event. The chat room will be available until around half an hour after the SiTP event ends for local Q&A Chat. We will have all microphones muted during the talk … but you will be able to use the online text chat facility while the talk is on.
