PORTSMOUTH: The Rose in June

THU 10TH SEP, 2015 7:30pm

We welcome back Portsmouth Skeptics Honorary Chairman this September with a talk entitled: Quantum Life: How physics can revolutionise biology.

How do migrating birds know where to go? How do we really smell the scent of a rose? How do our genes manage to copy themselves with such precision?

Life is the most extraordinary phenomenon in the known universe; but how does it work? Even in this age of cloning and synthetic biology, the remarkable truth remains: nobody has ever made anything living entirely out of dead material. Life remains the only way to make life. Are we missing a vital ingredient in its creation?

Jim Al-Khalili will reveal the hitherto missing ingredient to be quantum mechanics and the strange phenomena that lie at the heart of this most mysterious of sciences.
