Meetup SCIENCE MUSEUM: "MYSTERIES OF THE UNSEEN WORLD"
tickets SHARED BY:     Active Hampshire (& Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique)
Time:     10:00 to 23:55

Bob invites you to join him for a day trip to the Science Museum followed by a meal out in London. The visit will include the IMAX Cinema at The Science Museum to see the 3D film "MYSTERIES OF THE UNSEEN WORLD". The meeting point, date and times are provisional for the moment and will be confirmed nearer the time once we know the show times for the film. This event is shared by members of Active Hampshire, Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique and other local Inter-Varsity Clubs.

The film opens on 1st August 2014 at The Science Museum and is a production from the National Geographic. It will transport audiences to places on this planet that they have never been before, to see things that are beyond their normal vision, yet literally right in front of their eyes.

Mysteries of the Unseen World will reveal phenomena that can't be seen with the naked eye, taking audiences into earthly worlds secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale.

Viewers will experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; They will "see" the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena of that occur in the flash of a microsecond; They will enter the microscopic world that was once reserved only for scientists, but that Mysteries of the Unseen World makes accessible to the rest of us; They will begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is TO see on this Earth.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that now allow us to see a whole new universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed and now give us new "super powers" to see beyond what is in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Mysteries of the Unseen World will leave audiences in complete thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can't see, a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their own bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute-by-minute, and nanosecond-by-nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

Monday 18 Aug 2014
Meetup CAFE SCI: GENERATING POWER FROM THORIUM REACTORS
tickets SHARED BY:     Active Hampshire (& Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique)
Time:     19:00 to 21:30
Location:     The Tea Bar, 9-13 London Street, Basingstoke RG21 7NT
Postcode/Map Ref:     RG21 7NT
The speaker for the August 2014 meeting of Cafe Scientifique at The Tea Bar will be Dr. Samuel Murphy from the Atomistic Simulation Group of the Department of Materials at Imperial College London. The subject for this month is "Generating Power from Thorium Based Nuclear Reactors" (title to be confirmed).

The Tea Bar will be open from around 6.50pm before the talk which starts at 7:30pm, so you can get yourself a drink and have a chat with other participants. The discussions will aim to finish around 9:00pm, though everyone will be welcome to stay around and have a chat with the speaker afterwards ... and indulge in more of the Tea Bar's delicious cakes.
The format of the evening is usually a talk of 30 to 40 minutes, followed by a short break so the audience can refill their glasses, before questions and discussions about the talk. Entry is free and open to everyone, but we do encourage you to buy a tea, coffee or drink (and cakes) at the bar to show your support for The Tea Bar who sponsor the meeting by providing the venue.

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.

Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique is a free Special Interest Group organised and sponsored by the Active Hampshire Social Club.
