Compered by Fred Watson. We look at what might be missing in our quest to understand the Universe. Modern astrophysics has a lot to tell us about the origin and evolution of the Universe: its size, age, even its eventual fate. But are there cosmological secrets hidden right under our nose here on Earth? And is our long-distance view of things really as accurate as we'd like to believe?
Wednesday November 14 2001, SciPub LXVI: Plaza Ballroom, Radisson Plaza, Cairns City. World Heritage: populate or perish? Science in the Pub visits Cairns to take a look at the issues involved in maintaining a World Heritage area. What are the main threats to our heritagepopulation growth, ignorance or greed? These questions and many more will be addressed by our four panellists: Professor Richard Pearson, Ms Karen Benn, Dr Jonathan Nott and Councillor Mike Berwick, Mayor of Douglas Shire. Maintaining order and keeping the show on the road will be compere, Professor Brian Roberts. Brian will be ably assisted by ABC presenters, Ms Pat Morrish and Mr Jason Hagen who will be sparking questions and comments from the audience.
