Brilliant Blunders - Mistakes by Great Physicists that Changed Our Understanding of the Universe

Friday, 25 February 2022, 5pm to 6pm

With astrophysicist Dr Mario Livio (University of Nevada, Las Vegas). William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), Albert Einstein and Fred Hoyle are amongst the greatest physicists in history and some of the mistakes that these towering figures made led to major scientific advances. Dr Mario Livio will analyse these errors and the psychology which made such "brilliant blunders" part of these celebrated scientists' genius and part of the scientific process whereby science thrives on error and advances when erroneous ideas are disproven.
