Science London has joined forces with the Italian Cultural Institute to bring you two talks on what the recent detection of gravitational waves by the LIGO collaboration means for physics and science as a whole. Join us for two talks, followed by a Q&A and free drinks reception.

Dr Ben Still is a multi-award winning science communicator and physicist. With a PhD in particle physics, he is currently Honorary Research Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London. His research interests lie within the field of neutrino particle physics; developing particle detectors and statistical methods.

Professor Eugenio Coccia is an Italian physicist, an expert in astroparticle physics, and played a key role in the search for gravitational waves. Eugenio has been awarded the Occhialini Medal by the UK Institute of Physics and Sif in 2012 for his contribution to the search for gravitational waves.
