‘The Newtonian Moment’ is a duo public lecture by Dr Fabien Paillusson, School of Mathematics and Physics, and Dr Anna Marie Roos, School of History and Heritage, University of Lincoln.
Where: Isaac Newton Building Lecture Theatre, University of Lincoln
When: Wednesday 31st May, 6-7pm
The genius of Lincolnshire’s most famous scientific son will be the subject of a free public talk later this month, as the University of Lincoln opens the doors to its new £28 million Isaac Newton Building for the first time.
The Newtonian Moment will be the first public event to take place in the University’s flagship 500-seat lecture theatre in the major new science facility – named after the great mathematician and physicist who lived in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth near Grantham, Lincolnshire.
Bringing together expertise in physics and the history of science, the free-to-attend lecture will shine a light on Sir Isaac Newton’s greatest discoveries, which include some of the most important laws of mathematics and physics that still shape the way we think about the universe today.
The Newtonian Moment takes place in the Isaac Newton Building lecture theatre at 6pm on Wednesday 31st May 2017. It is free to attend but places should be booked in advance online.
The lecture, presented by the University of Lincoln’s Dr Anna Marie Roos and Dr Fabien Paillusson, will combine insights from the worlds of science, history and the arts.
Further details about the talk are available in an article on the University of Lincoln website.
