Christophe Galfard

The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey through Space, Time and Beyond

Venue: Tolerance Majlis

Christophe Galfard, the Cambridge physicist who trained with Stephen Hawking takes us on a wonder-filled journey to the surface of our dying sun, shrinks us to the size of an atom and puts us in the deathly grip of distant black holes. Along the way you might come to understand – really understand – the mind-bending science that underpins modern life, from quantum mechanics to Einstein's theory of general relativity.

Through brilliant storytelling and humour rather than graphs and equations, the internationally renowned astrophysicist has written an instant classic that brings the astonishing beauty of the universe to life – and takes us deep into questions about the beginning of time and the future of humanity.

Chaired by Marcus du Sautoy.
