About the event

American Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Professor Kip Thorne is traveling to Australia to lead an eminent panel discussion delving into how scientific advances will change how we live our lives and how the world we live in will change for ever. What’s NEXT? is a series of live shows that brings the brightest and most articulate scientific, innovative and comedic minds together to discuss what’s next in science, technology and engineering. Joining Professor Thorne will be astronomer Professor Alan Duffy and Robin Ince, award-winning British comedian and co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage. Together they will discuss the area of Thorne’s Nobel Prize work: the past, present and future of gravitational wave research and multi-messenger astronomy, their remarkable technology, and their future impact on human understanding of the universe in which we live. As the world lurches towards an era of alternative facts, it is imperative for us to have a critical understanding of many emerging technologies, innovations and scientific endeavours that will determine what’s likely to happen NEXT. From the way businesses will run, the way we live our personal lives, to the way we get about, communicate, combat pandemics or save the planet.
