Lord Rees ‘On the Future: Prospects for Humanity’

May 19 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Martin Rees is an Astrophysicist and Cosmologist, and the Astronomer Royal. In this Keynote Lecture he will discuss themes from his recent book.

Our Earth has existed for 45 million centuries but this is the first when one species – ours – has the planet’s future in its hands.

Advances in bio- and cyber-technology, and robotics could empower us to boost the developing world and overcome the threats humanity faces.

At the same time, further advances in space science will allow humans to explore the solar system and beyond with robots and AI.

But there is no ‘Planet B’ for our home if we do not care for it.

Adults: £7.50. Children £4.
