Our upcoming events:
Please be reminded of our next Supper Talk on Thursday 17 October featuring Dung beetles and their role in keeping the earth and us alive.
Professor Marcus Byrne won the 2013 Ig Nobel Prizefor Biology/Astronomy along with: Marie Dacke, Emily Baird, Clarke Scholtz, and Eric Warrant, for discovering that when dung beetles get lost, they can navigate their way home by looking at the Milky Way. This research has practical applications, for example helping how to develop complex visual systems.
