Cosmologists and physicists employ a set of universal constants that are determined from observations. It turns out that these numbers are critical to our existence.

If the Universe had even slightly different properties, life would be impossible. So why does our Universe appear to be just right for life?

Join University of Sydney cosmologists Luke Barnes and Geraint Lewis in a rolling journey through modern science and examine one of the biggest puzzles of them all: namely, why are we here?

Standard tickets are £16 but a 25% discounted is available to B-AS Members (£12) – please call the office for the code. Members of the Ri also qualify for a discount – see their site for information.
