Here’s the Science with Professor Luke O’Neill
26 November , 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm GMT
With Professor Luke O’Neill
In partnership with Science Gallery Dublin
Join one of Ireland’s favourite scientists, Professor Luke O’Neill, for a fascinating evening exploring his new book, Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here’s the Science (Gill Books) in the fitting surrounds of the Science Gallery Dublin. In Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here’s the Science, Luke uses his trademark easy wit to make complex scientific questions accessible, grappling with wide-ranging topics, from global pandemics, to addiction and euthanasia. The book is a celebration of science and hard facts in a time of fake news and sometimes unhelpful groupthink.
