Details

You're Going To Die is part of a series of lectures at the Royal Institute curated by TV Presenter Dallas Campbell of Bang Goes the Theory Fame.

Here's what the event is all about:

"So you think you understand the fallibilities of the human mind? You're not out of the woods yet. The universe is a dangerous place. Whoever said: ‘you have nothing to fear but fear itself', obviously hadn't taken deadly pandemics, super-volcanoes, gamma ray bursts, and of course the vacuum metastability event into account. If you've been worrying about your five-a-day intake recently, you don't know what worrying is. Not even the awesome power of a hi-viz-jacket can save you from most of the cataclysmic events that lie in wait . We run down some of the most popular ways the world will end. If someone tells you to ‘cheer up it might never happen' should come to this"

The event starts at 7pm and will finish at 8.30pm.

Tickets: £10 Standard, £7 Concessions and Free to members. I recommend that you buy your tickets in advance.
