When Scientists Do Extraordinary Things

From Galileo to Einstein and beyond, scientists have always gained their reputations by making sense of anomalies. Science is a process of finding something that doesn’t make sense, then trying to work out why. But once you have found something that seems intriguingly strange, what do you do? That’s up to you! Whether you are making sense of the universe or finding a way to heal the human body, you may have to do things that seem mad, bad or extremely dangerous. In this café, renowned science writer Michael Brooks will relate his investigations into the extraordinary lengths some scientists go to in order to win a Nobel Prize. … Some of Michael Brooks’ titles will be available for his autograph during the Café.

… who holds a PhD in quantum physics, is an author, journalist and broadcaster.

He is the author of Free Radicals: The Secret Anarchy of Science and the bestselling non-fiction title, 13 Things That Don’t Make Sense.
