The Quantum Astrologer’s Handbook
Humans have been trying to make sense of the universe since they first looked up at the stars. Most of us have now shaken off the idea that the heavens display patterns that foretell significant events, and we certainly know more about the universe than any generation in history. But how much do we understand about what we have discovered? In this talk, Michael Brooks looks at modern cosmology through the eyes of the 16th century astrologer, mathematician, inventor and physician Jerome Cardano. Cardano laid the mathematical foundations for quantum theory, and his unusual perspective suggests that science might not have made as much progress as you think. £3 on the door

What we're about

Portsmouth Skeptics in the Pub! We are a friendly, informal group, and we meet to enjoy talks on science, pseudo-science, philosophy, religion, and more, and to chat about these subjects over a drink.

We usually meet on the second Thursday of each month. £3 door charge covers speakers expenses

What can you expect at our events? Interesting talks, lively debate, a chance to hang with people who have a rational outlook, and people willing to listen to you and answer your questions. The general format we follow is a talk from our guest speaker (usually lasting around 45 minutes), a 15 minute break to get a drink, and then a Q&A session for as long as the speaker can provide us. Afterwards, there's plenty of time to mingle and - as it takes place at The Rifle Club so grab a few drinks too.

You can find out more details about our events on our official SitP page ( ) or by joining our Facebook group ( or liking our Facebook page (
