The Wonderful World of Non-Dimensional Number Groups
With the aid of three golf balls and a potato Geoff will demonstrate the fundamental
principle behind Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity as well as showing how wind
turbines are designed, why the wind whistles through overhead power cables, why cars
are shaped the way they are and how to stop your coffee slopping out of the cup whilst
carrying it through a jolting railway carriage.
Part I given in October 2018 by David Harris:
Creation - From Big Bang to Humans … How it all Began - Part I The Non Organic Universe
During this session we will explore how man developed an understanding of the Non
Organic Universe based on the findings and theories from the 18th century to today,
with some input from earlier times.
Our journey involves some of the key natural philosophers, how their theories have
stood the test of time - or not - and where current research is pointing.
Is it all real or “The Emperor’s New Clothes”?

Creation - From Big Bang to Humans … How it all Began - Part II The Organic Universe
This session complements last month’s presentation by concentrating on the Organic
Creation and so covers how life may have begun and how it is structured.
We look at what happens in the cells of our body and how human input can change the
ways cells of living things can be modified.
We finish by considering how we can resolve the problems that science can never have
the answers for.
