Thame Town Hall (Upper Chamber), 13 June 2011
The Pulse Project is delighted to present video coverage of the inaugural Pulse Public Science Lecture convened in collaboration with the Thame Town Council on the 13 June 2011. With over sixty members of the public in the audience, Dr Stuart Clark's lecture on "The Origins of Science" also marked the probably first ever such event in Thame, one that will hopefully be expanded into a fully fledged lecture series over the coming months
Dr Clark relates “…how the fractious birth of science in the seventeenth century was driven by some of the hottest blood of all. People like Galileo, Kepler and Newton dreamed of finding a ‘theory of everything’ – a way to explain all things in the ‘language of God’: mathematics.”
Journalist, award-winning author and broadcaster, Stuart Clark is an engaging storyteller. Fiction or non-fiction, his work is written with conviction and with passion. He holds a first-class honours degree and a PhD in astrophysics and has devoted his career to presenting the complex and dynamic world of astronomy to the general public.
His latest work is the pioneering trilogy The Sky’s Dark Labyrinth, which blends gripping, original historical fiction with popular science to tell the story of astronomy.
