When we hear about physics, we often hear about the weirdness of the tiny quantum world or the bewildering vastness of the cosmos. But there's a lot in the middle, and it's time someone starting talking about it. Helen Czerski will take us through some of the little everyday oddities that shed light on some of the most important science and technology of our time. Once the patterns are visible, a new perspective on the world beckons.
Helen Czerski is a Lecturer in the department of Mechanical Engineering at UCL. She is the author of "Storm in a Teacup", a new popular science book exploring the physics of everyday life.
This lecture was recorded at the Royal Institution on 15 February 2017.
