Can Humans Go Extinct? Special Event at The Natural History Museum

To celebrate the opening of the Extinction exhibition on 8th Feb, the Natural History Museum have organised a talk about whether or not the human race can go extinct:

"The end of the human species has been discussed in science and popular culture through a great number of scenarios: population decline, evolution, environmental collapse and rapid advances in technology, to name a few. But are we really at risk?
Join this highly topical debate at the first in our evening discussion events to mark the Extinction exhibition opening on 8 February.

At the event our speakers will be asking these questions and more:

- If we are at risk, is this from a single or combination of events?

- What are the chances the human race could determine its own fate?

- How many threats are we preparing for and are these necessarily the most likely to occur?

Join us to talk about our success as a species and how this has increased the threats we face."

Booking is required and tickets are £12 each (£10 for members).

Doors are at 6.30pm and the talk starts at 7pm

    Very informative and interesting, though perhaps a little 'popular'.

    We had great fun with both Shane and Rowan during the discussion but I must admit that the dinosaurs gallery during the lates is amazing as well!
