The Universe Revealed is a unique experience that takes you on a journey revealing nothing less than how the universe came to be and how life began on Earth. World class speakers deliver up-to-the-minute knowledge of the universe, the solar system and life on earth with a series of presentations covering diverse fields. The sequential nature of the presentations means that you will get a story of how we went from the Big Bang to complex life on Earth – all in an afternoon.
This is an experiment in a new way of communicating cutting edge ideas to the public. The show will be filmed and put on the web, like TED videos, for free.
Speakers include recent Distinguished Professor Brian Schmidt (google him) and former host of the ABC’s Catalyst program Paul Willis.
The Universe Revealed will run between noon to 6pm – including a panel discussion at the end – and is a catered event.
Duration – 450 minutes with intervals
