BeakerStreet@TMAG is proud to present Dr Karl's Extreme Moments in Science: Real or Fake?

What is real? What is the real colour of the Universe? Do you really use only 10% of your brain? Why did Dr Karl fly to the Antarctic in an aeroplane with a 3m x 4m hole in the side? What generates more power, the Mighty Sun or your Compost Pile? How did the world’s first car trip in 1888 set us up for a revolution in air transport? And finally, the truth about Santa and astrology.

Dr Karl's Extreme Moments In Science celebrates all sides of science—from sublime moments of deep thought to the most arcane and bizarre research imaginable. The universe is a strange and wonderful place and, in this talk, Karl scales the highest peaks as well as turns over the pebbles to see what's underneath.

Don't forget to bring your questions for the Q&A! There will also be an opportunity to meet Dr Karl for book signing before the show. Doors will open from 3:30pm.
