Elizabeth Graham will participate in a Lunch Hour Lecture in UCL on 6 December entitled Apocalypse in 2012? History, Myth and Science.  

Did the Classic Maya really predict the end of the world on 21 December 2012? What caused them to record a date that would occur over a thousand years into their future? This lecture will review a variety of apocalyptic prophecies, specially the one for this year, in the light of scientific research into the formation, development and eventual destruction of entire solar systems, including ours.

Lunch Hour Lectures take place 13:15 - 13:55, are free, require no pre-booking, and are open to anyone on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lectures are also streamed live online or can be downloaded after the event. Further details are available here»

Come and hear Elizabeth and Francisco Diego Quintana (UCL Physics and Astronomy) talk about the end of the world!
