Choose your own apocalypse

30 October 2019

In 1704, Isaac Newton predicted the world would end in 2060. Check your calendars… that’s only about 40 years away. So how can we prepare for doomsday? First, we need to figure out the cause.

We’re bringing together a geoscientist, astrophysicist, biologist and infectious disease expert to pitch their predictions for how the world as we know it will end.

Will it be space rock falling from the sky? A pandemic outbreak? An unsuspecting natural hazard? The decline of biodiversity on earth? You decide!

Join us for a battle of scientific proportions where you will get to choose which apocalyptic prediction comes out on top.

Hosted by Adam Spencer, the University’s Mathematics and Science Ambassador, and featuring Professor Dale Dominey-Howes, Professor Tania Sorrell, Professor Geraint Lewis, Dr Emily Remnant and special guest Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.

Please note this is an 18+ only event.
