Dive into the world of particle physics with astrophysicist, science communicator and media personality Dr Alan Duffy. Dr Duffy will talk about the world’s greatest science experiment – CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Find out about the 27-km collider buried deep under the border between Switzerland and France and its cathedral-sized detector caverns. Learn about the Higgs boson and discover how studying the subatomic world can point the way to a fuller understanding of our universe  The worlds greatest experiment

A science writer says that even people who aren't scientists should have seen the trouble behind the claims of Elizabeth Holmes, founder of the now-disgraced Theranos medical company. The clues are here

Dr Lisa Harvey-Smith is an astrophysicist, educator and speaker. She has worked at world-class astronomical observatories in the U.K., Germany, The Netherlands and Australia. Lisa was a member of the team that delivered Australia’s successful bid to host the world’s largest radio telescope - the Square Kilometre Array. Her role as a researcher and project scientist for an $188m SKA precursor telescope places her at the cutting-edge of technology development for radio astronomy  Science Week
