Experimental Newton lecture in new Newton building

Our last public lecture of the 2016/17 season was a special experiment: a duo talk given by Dr Anna Marie Roos from the School of History & Heritage and Dr Fabien Paillusson from the School of Mathematics and Physics.  On 31st May 2017, the sciences and the humanities met as Drs Paillluson and Roos each gave a short lecture about The Newtonian Moment, their presentation held in the new Sir Isaac Newton Building on the University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool Campus. Their talk, which melded history, philosophy, and science and featured digital animations, attracted an audience of about 200 people, the largest so far in our lecture series. A successful experiment, this event was a wonderful way to honour our most famous Lincolnshire scientist and to celebrate the University of Lincoln’s commitment to scientific enterprise and innovation.

Before the lecture start: introduction by Prof Andrei Zvelindovsky

Answering questions from the audience after the lecture: Dr Anna Marie Roos and Dr Fabien Paillusson

  6. An excellent event in a superb venue. The animations of the solar system from the perspective of a viewer on earth were really informative.
