Lateral Events is delighted that American Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Professor Kip Thorne has accepted our invitation to travel 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 Kip Thorne will be astrophysicist Professor Alan Duffy and co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince.

Join the panellists in the ‘Afterlife Club’ for a glass of wine and some antipasti as they wind down after the show. Chat about absolutely anything, have the obligatory photo and enjoy the intimate setting.
