No longer available

Bruce Mason Centre

Talks & ideas

Professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, Dr Brian Greene is well known as one of the world’s leading science communicators. Focusing on string theory, mathematical physics and cosmology, Dr Greene’s goal is to universalise science and scientific interest, democratising it from the ivory towers of academia and down to the ground, where the impact is greatest.

A Time Traveller’s Tale will see Dr Greene bring his mind-bending (and mending) explanations for reality-altering discoveries to New Zealand for the first time. The evening will feature a lecture from Dr Greene, followed by a question and answer session with the evening’s host, along with an audience Q&A.
