The Big Bang

What is the Big Bang, who came up with the idea and why do we believe in it?

Simon Singh tells the story of the Big Bang theory, from its birth in the 1920s to the observational evidence that backed it and then clinched it. As well as discussing the development of the Big Bang theory, Simon will also discuss more generally how new scientific ideas are invented, developed and adopted. This will include the partnership
between theory and experiment and the role of personalities and politics.

This event is in association with Fourth Estate. Ticket price includes a glass of wine after the event and an opportunity to buy Simon’s book The Big Bang.
