What we're about

Basingstoke Science & Climate Cafe is a place where anyone is welcome to explore the latest ideas in science, technology and climate change. We encourage our members and attendees to donate the price of a coffee towards our speakers expenses, administration and web site costs.

We aim to host regular Science, Technology and Climate Change public talks and discussions at the Red Lion Hotel Bar in London Street. These events include a mix of live speakers plus discussion of the event topic in a follow-on Q&A session.  The live speakers are experts in their field invited from local companies and academic centres and are specialists in the subjects under discussion.

We also publicise in our calendar the details of many live-stream public talks from the likes of TED.com, The Royal Institution, The Royal Society and other Cafe Scientifique groups. Booking for these online talks is often handled outside this meetup group, so please read the event instructions carefully.

Everyone is welcome to attend this Meetup groups events free of charge. Basingstoke Science & Climate Cafe is a not-for-profit group organised by Meet-Basingstoke.ivc.org.uk. Join this meetup group to receive email notifications via Meetup of any science and technology talks, debates and lectures that we hear about.

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/satellite-navigation-registration-326432547537

Cafe Scientifique is a national movement for science and technology in casual settings: each has its own character but all are fun, engaging, informal and explore fascinating ideas in science and technology.
Cyber Cafe Sci is online - capturing the cafe experinece through the informal Gather platform that lets you watch, listen, and join in if you wish.

SUMMARY
At this event we join a conversation with Emanuele Ziglioli - a SatNav engineer who knows how GPS really works, why it doesn't, and how to fix it.

We all know SatNav is awesome - but few of us know just how amazing it is that it works at all. Navigation quite literally not only at, but by, the speed of light: with your phone in your hand, swinging about like crazy as you walk or run or cycle, the GPS signals are jiggered and confused and confounded in ways that require us to know all about Einstein's Relativity, Doppler shifts, shadows, reflections, and bendy light paths. Small wonder it sometimes isn't perfect - and even greater wonder how engineers measure, calibrate, and compensate for so many complex and difficult perturbations to make it work as well as it does.

ABOUT CYBER SCIENCE CAFE
These events will always remain free for as long as the Cyber Science Cafe run them. If you would like to support their efforts to build science conversation, please use the supporter's ticket options, or get in touch to talk to them about CyberCafeSci Ltd and other ways you can help and support our mission.

Cyber Cafe Sci is an evolution of the local Woking (England) Cafe Sci - transferred online during the pandemic and continuing to encourage our international online guests and audience.
