Past events
On the 6th of November, Mr S interviewed the famous British Scientist James Piercy.   James is a well-known science communicator all over the world and a couple of years ago he was involved in a tragic accident which affected his brain.  Being the scientist that he is, he now talks about how the brain works, how his accident affected his brain and what he has done to get his brain to perform tasks by “rerouting” and “relearning”.  He is a highly entertaining speaker.  Watch it live on YouTube here: 

On the 7th of November  Mr S introduced a NASA Deputy chief technologist Jim Adams.  Over 12 different countries took part in the Google hangout too.  Photos are on the website and here is the video clip: YouTube:
(The hangout auto - selected a different participant for the first few mins of the presentation so you will hear it and see it in a small window but Jim appears on the full screen from 28:50)
