Success for public physics lectures
More than 600 people attended our inaugural series of free physics lectures in Lancaster city centre this autumn.
The six weekly lectures at the Storey Institute were full to capacity, with the public audience ranging from schoolchildren to pensioners. The six topics included neutrinos, the Higgs Boson, cosmology, space weather, low-temperature physics and light-shining-through-a-wall experiments and were given by physicists Dr Laura Kormos, Dr Harald Fox, Dr Anupam Mazumdar, Dr Jim Wild, Dr Rich Haley and Dr Ian Bailey.
