Internationally-renowned physicist and theoretical physics professor Clauda de Rham has been playing with gravity her entire life: as a pilot, soaring over Canadian waterfalls, and as an astronaut candidate, and as a physicist, exploring the limits of Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

She will be joined by Dr Tom Chatfield, author and tech philosopher, who will delve into the co-evolution of humanity and technology.

Last, but not least, journalist, writer and broadcaster Dr Phoenix Andrews will shed light on the world of fandoms and reveal how people power has become the hidden force behind the most surprising events in recent history.
