The Electric Universe: Paul Malone talks astronomy for CALM, this Thursday!

“The Electric Universe: A unique and controversial talk on astronomy” by Paul Malone.

Get ready, as this Thursday 3rd May Paul Malone will be going on a cosmonautical journey. He’ll be talking about the electric universe at 6pm, with all proceeds going to CALM.

Deptford based artist Paul Malone will take you on a unique and controversial tour of the Universe. Originally devised to introduce artists and designers to the wide range of forms inherent in plasma structures, this talk follows contemporary speculations into the role that electro-dynamics play in forming the objects that we see in modern astronomy.

Time: 5.45 for 6.00-7.00pm

Location: The Ability Media Centre, 56 Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 0AS (on the corner with Union Street).

Find out more on Paul’s website:

Although the talk is free, please donate what you can at the door, as all proceeds will be going to CALM.

So get away from all the mayoral election blather and hear about something really worth knowing and thinking about, and support CALM while you’re at it too!

  2. Hi Ben,
    So sorry you couldn’t come along this time but I am out and about in Southwark and hope to do another free one nearer Xmas. I hope those that came were entertained, informed and, most importantly, moved to query.
    Yes you are right, science has a political element that needs to be addressed by discourse. There are so many basic questions that are just not answered within mainstream science. Here is one… “Given the Sun rotates, why is it a perfect sphere?” Wikipedia is not so informative on this topic and I have tried for 2 years to find an astronomer that can satisfy my curiosity. Of course there is an answer, but you’ll have to come to my next talk!
    Good luck and best wishes to yourself, Paul

  3. Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences. Prehistoric cultures left behind astronomical artifacts such as the Egyptian monuments and Nubian monuments, and early civilizations such as the Babylonians, Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Iranians and Maya performed methodical observations of the night sky. However, the invention of the telescope was required before astronomy was able to develop into a modern science. Historically, astronomy has included disciplines as diverse as astrometry, celestial navigation, observational astronomy, and the making of calendars, but professional astronomy is nowadays often considered to be synonymous with astrophysics.^
