JIM BAGGOTT - MASS
Thursday 8 June at 3pm
We are surrounded by 'stuff', from planets, to books, to our own bodies. Whatever it is, it is solid; it has mass, and we call it matter. Yet science has shown that the foundations of our universe are not solid or dependable. They are instead built from ghosts and phantoms, of a peculiar quantum kind. Drawing on his new book Mass, award-winning science writer Jim Baggott questions our understanding of matter, its origins, and the implications for our understanding of the material world.
