Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture 2013

I don’t really know what to do with this information other than post it here. I wish I were in England for this. Stephen Mangan is great, and a wonderful Douglas Adams fan. A great Dirk Gently, as well. I hope you get to attend.

Time: 18:30
Cost: £15
Address: 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)

 

 

This year’s Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture will be taken by Dr Adam Rutherford with a special guest introduction from Stephen Mangan.

Creation: the origin and the  future of life

After four billion years of  evolution, and a century of taking cells apart to find out how they work, we  have a pretty robust understanding of DNA, evolution and the mechanics of life.  Now, we are just beginning to put them back together to do two things: recreate  the origin of life, and invent new lifeforms to kickstart a global industrial  revolution.
