To celebrate Darwin’s 200th birthday, Professor Sir David King, formerly the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, and Professor Richard Dawkins, all round advocate of science, delivered a riveting presentation on, “Can British science rise to the new challenges of the 21st Century?” I was fortunate enough to get tickets for this event so took a trip [...]
