karohemd: photo by me (Science)
was fun, interesting but also brain hurting.
Robin Ince was the compere, Simon Singh did among other things an interesting bit on cryptography including the demonstration of an actual ENIGMA machine(!), Steve Jones talked about evolution, Adam Rutherford about genetics and inbreeding in Norfolk, Brian Cox about cosmology, the LHC and Einstein's theory of relativity, Helen Arney sang geeky songs and played Ukulele and Ben Goldacre talked about bad science in medical trials.
All very interesting, entertaining and very often funny.

One of the best quotes of the night was from Brian Cox talking about relativity and went something like this:
"You can fit a 4 metre long car into a 3.9 metre long garage if you drive fast enough. I just hope the guys from Top Gear won't try that now..."
