Science on Tap 2013
Weizmann Institute scientists and research fellows took to 61 bars and cafes across Tel Aviv, where they shared with the public the excitement that accompanies scientific research at the forefront of human knowledge. The event took place on Wednesday, 24 April, 2013, at 20:30.
Are there parallel realities? What is the ultimate fate of the Universe? How was life created? Is it possible to create an artificial brain? Is nuclear fusion the solution to the energy crisis? What is personalized medicine? Is it possible to learn during sleep? Why do stars explode? And are we really made of stardust? These are just a few of the questions that the Weizmann scientists discussed with the public.
