The Science Behind 'His Dark Materials'

An evening of fascinating talks and discussion exploring the science behind Phillip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy. In his award winning novels Pullman explores some of the most fundamental questions about our world and how we make sense of it. These questions and the imaginative responses he poses, reflect much of the ‘real’ world of physics and the answers that physicists seek.

Inspired by the ideas and themes in the trilogy, our panel of physics researchers bring Pullman’s worlds to life through cutting edge research and share some of the remarkable things we have learned, and have yet to learn, about our universe.

Tune into the live-stream below.
