Twitter Competition: The Long Earth
Win tickets to see Terry Pratchett live at the Ri - Competition now closed.
We offered you the chance to win two tickets to a unique (and sold out) event at the Ri with award-winning author Terry Pratchett.
THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
The Long Earth Event
What if there are multiple quantum earths? And what if we could go there?
World famous authors Sir Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter come together to discuss their new series of novels entitled ‘The Long Earth', inspired by the many-worlds interpretation of quantum theory. To introduce the topic, philosopher of physics David Wallace will guide you through how the many-worlds interpretation arose from quantum mechanics and the crazy claims it makes about our Universe. Can cats really be in two places at once?
The event, in association with Forbidden Planet, will be hosted by author, journalist and broadcaster Roger Highfield.
Watch full event highlights right here on the Ri Channel from Tuesday 26 June.
