Lates: Faster, higher, stronger

02 July 2024 18:30 - 21:30 The Royal Society Free

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2024.

The Royal Society’s Librarian (who prefers sitting with a good book) has an Olympian task, to find history’s greatest scientist-athlete. Will the archives give him a slam-dunk or find him on a sticky wicket? Join him on a race through time to discover who gets gold.
