STFC Online Talking Science - 'The future ain't what it used to be' by Dr Mark Lewney
Why aren't astrologers rich? Surely, the horoscope of a footballer would tell them how to win a game? The science of foretelling the future has changed dramatically over the centuries, so why can we predict some things, like total eclipses, but not others?

Join our favourite guitar physicist Dr Mark Lewney as he presents 'a history of the future', beginning with films such as 2001 Space Odyssey and Back To The Future 2. He will explain in simple terms what chaos theory, and quantum physics is, and how these mind blowing theories prevent us from predicting everyday life.

Finally, we will look at the evolution of science and technology and how, with the development of supermaterials such as graphene, our future may change completely.

Even though we cannot be sure exactly what the future holds – we know that it is going to be very exciting when we get there!
