‘Life, the Universe and Everything’ is the theme for the first in a new series of café chats in Milton Keynes, run by the science faculty at the Open University.

Hosted at the Slug & Lettuce in the Theatre District, the events will provide a chance to explore the latest ideas of science and technology in an informal setting.

Each event at the Café Sci will involve a talk by an OU scientist, followed by a Q&A session, aimed at a general audience.

The first one will be given by Dr Natalie Starkey and Dr Louisa Preston, Cosmologists and Research Associates at the OU, on the topic of Life in the Cosmos. It will include a look at some of the collection of Mars meteorites.

Dr Natalie Starkey said: “The aim is to provide a great way of getting science out there in an informal setting, so people can meet those behind the science and put their questions to them.”

The first event is open to the public, and will take place Monday April 15 at 7.30pm.
