If you're cosmically curious or just somewhat spacey, this event could hold the answer to life, the universe and everything

What is a black hole? Are other dimensions possible? What's dark matter? And is time travel (theoretically or otherwise) really possible?

Instead of turning to science fiction for the answers to these questions, it's a much better idea to find out from a real theoretical physicist. And there is no one better qualified to talk space, time and everything in between (and those first two might be the same, we left our astrophysics PhD in our other pants) than Nobel Prize-winning physicist Kip Thorne. 

Thorne will be having a (yes, pretty nerdy) conversation with Australian astrophysicist Alan Duffy, who just happens to create universes on supercomputers to understand how galaxies form and figure out what the go is with dark matter. 

To stop it all from hurting your brain will be the job of the third speaker on the night, British comedian Robin Ince. 

If you have always wanted to learn the future of the universe, this could be your chance to find out from those who actually know.
