You send a Whatsapp message to a friend on the other side of the galaxy.

It races towards them at the speed of light.

100,000 years pass.

The message finally arrives.
...
“U ok?”

They are no longer okay.

Space is pretty big these days. So how are we going to explore it?

In this talk, Matthew will take you on a journey into deep space, stopping off at bizarre galaxies and mysterious supervoids along the way, giving you an insight into the enormous scale of the universe, and the challenge of exploring it.

He’ll then give a very accessible introduction to Einstein’s theories of relativity, and how we can apply them to explore the universe.

You’ll learn all about space, how to distort it, and how to travel through time itself.

Finally, Matthew will also explain the biology behind how life began, and the chances of finding life out there in the universe!


Matthew Shribman is a scientist and environmentalist with a 1st Class MChem from the University of Oxford.

His main mission in life is to make science as accessible as oxygen.

Matthew’s fun and accessible style have helped him to gain over 20M video views online, and to grow a following of over 60,000 people, ranging 13-year-olds to PhD students and grandparents.
