Sovereign Science Sixty years of answering the world's biggest scientific questions

As part of the 2012 Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition

How can we make organ transplants safer? When will we beat cancer? What makes the continents shift on the Earth’s surface? And what happens inside a black hole?

During the sixty years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, the Royal Society’s Fellows have tackled science’s biggest questions, making astonishing discoveries and transforming how we view ourselves and our world.

This exhibit showcases some of the most significant of these discoveries, revealing how they have changed our understanding of everything from our genes and health to our planet and universe.
