Public conference by Hubert Reeves

Globe of Science and Innovation
Wednesday 16 July 2014 - 7.00 p.m.

Please note that this conference will be in French only.

"The Universe is changing.  We are not strangers in the Universe: recent discoveries in astrophysics prove our intimate bond with everything shining in the sky."

Save the date! On Wednesday 16 July 2014, Hubert Reeves, astrophysicist, philosopher and engaging communicator, is back at the Globe of Science and Innovation to talk about the frontiers of physics, astronomy and philosophy, two years after the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN. If you ever wondered how this discovery has changed our knowledge of the Universe and strengthened the bond between the infinitely large world of astrophysics and the infinitely small world of quantum physics, this event is for you.

The conference is part of POPSCIENCE, a project organised by CERN in partnership with Subway Edizioni, the Origins Association, the World Academy of Poetry, the University of Geneva and FNAC, for European Researchers’ Night 2014. Reeves will be one of the tutors initiating a group of European poets in the latest in physics and astrophysics. France Info journalist Marie-Odile Monchicourt and physicist Michel Spiro (former President of the CERN Council) will also talk to the poets about Theatre at the frontier between Art and Science at 5.45 p.m., followed by Italian poet Davide Rondoni talking about Poetry and Science at 6.10 p.m.

The event is open to the public and local press from 5.30 p.m.

Entrance is free, but registration is mandatory:
