Winchester cafe Sci: "Testing Einstein's General Relativity with Pulsars"

Tonight's Cafe Sci in Winchester will be lead by Dr Rene Breton from University of Southampton who will be speaking on "Testing Einstein's General Relativity with Pulsars".

NOTE:  The venue for Cafe Scientifique in Winchester has now changed to the front bar area of The Discovery Centre in Jewry Street.  The Discovery Centre will be open for at least half an hour before the talk which starts at 7.30pm, so you can get yourself a drink and have a chat with other participants. The discussions will aim to finish around 9.00pm, though everyone will be welcome to stay around and have a chat with the speaker afterwards.

There is no charge for admission, but donations towards speakers expenses are welcome.  If anybody would like to help with the running of the Winchester Café Sci, please speak to the organizer William Vine on the evening.

The format of the evening is usually a talk of 30 to 40 minutes, followed by a short break so the audience can refill their glasses, before questions and discussions about the talk.   Entry is open to everyone, but we do encourage you to buy a tea, coffee  and cakes to show your support for the Discovery Centre who sponsor the meeting by providing the venue.

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.

Hosted by: William Vine, Organizer for Winchester Cafe Scientifique

    Interesting evening - shame Meetup was down as I didn't have access to anyone's pictures, so failed to meet anyone from the group! Next time.... Great cakes too!

    Brilliant talk from an enthusiastic scientist who obviously knows what he's talking about. Venue in the open area of the library/café was good but could do with a pa system.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
