13 JOURNEYS THROUGH SPACE AND TIME

– CHRISTMAS LECTURES FROM THE ROYAL INSTITUTION

Foreword by British astronaut Tim Peake

The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures have been a staple of the festive period for nearly two hundred years. I look back at 13 devoted to our understanding of the universe, delving into the historical archives to chart our changing understanding of the cosmos. Lecturers include Carl Sagan, Monica Grady and Sir Bernard Lovell.

Who to dedicate it to:
