Visiting Isaac Newton’s birthplace

On 26 May our maths and physics students and staff visited Woolsthorpe Manor — the birthplace of Isaac Newton, where he also spent much time in 1665-67 making  most important discoveries in maths and physics, in particular, laying foundations of Calculus, conducting experiments with light. Here still grows the famous apple tree, the falling of […]

Doris vs Robert Grosseteste

Poseidon has definitely sent storm Doris to  prevent establishing a new tradition in Lincoln – annual public lectures in Cosmology/Astrophysics. However, his efforts were in vain: in a truly heroic 9 hours trip, combining multiple trains and a taxi, our inaugural speaker Professor Peter Coles arrived from Cardiff to the waiting audience in Lincoln. Straight out […]
