This month our speaker is Professor Peter Atkins, well renowned scientist and author of numerous chemistry textbooks and popular science books.

Peter Atkins’ most recent book (OUP) is “Conjuring the universe: the origins of the laws of nature”. In this talk he will explore why the universe behaves the way it does and argue that it is all down to a combination of indolence, anarchy and ignorance.
