Public Talk - Will the Universe Kill Me?

Fitzsimmons, A. (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic lecture/debate/seminar

Description

There is a small but finite chance that the Universe will kill you, and take all that stress away. What will it be? Asteroid impact, solar flare, or death ray from a neutron star? Modern science has progressed to the stage where we can calculate these chances, weigh them up, and decide whether to blow that pension pot. Professor Alan Fitzsimmons from the Astrophysics Research Centre at Queen's University Belfast will be laying down the odds.
