The Department of Physics at Royal Holloway University of London presents:

Dr. Andrew Casey (RHUL) –  The coldest place in the Universe

What is the coldest place in the Universe? Is it somewhere in deep space, in a Galaxy far away? Could it be in Neptune, 4.5 billion km away from the sun? Could it be in our own moon, in a crater so deep that light can never reach?

Or is it in physics labs, right here, on planet Earth? One of them is actually in a walking distance from the venue of our Christmas evening lecture! Find out about exotic phenomena like super conductivity and super fluidity, discuss Nobel Prize 2016 and participate in a lecture on the coolest topic ever… literally. Join Dr. Andrew Casey, Royal Holloway Physicist, as he explains the amazing, large-scale quantum phenomena that take place in very low temperatures, on the 8th of December.
