Royal Institution Public Talk - How to spaghettify your dog

Monday 23rd October 2023 from 19:00pm to 20:30pm

The Royal Institution
21 Albermarle Street, London, London, W1S 4BS

Have you ever wondered how to slow down time? Or what would happen if the Earth stopped spinning? Or whether you’d be OK if you fell into a black hole?

Well, wonder no more. Join Hiba Noor Khan on a journey across the universe and learn all about the phenomenal laws of physics – from the tiniest building blocks of our body to the enormous stars that burn in our skies, light years away.

How to Spaghettify Your Dog is bursting with fascinating physics facts that will explain everything you want to know, and more, about the curiosities of our cosmos. Featuring easy-to-follow experiments, eye-catching illustrations by Waterstones Book Prize winner Harry Woodgate and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, this hands-on book will demystify physics and bring science to life.

Copies of Hiba’s latest book ‘How to Spaghettify Your Dog: and other science secrets of the universe’ is available to purchase after the event.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 7+. As with all our family theatre talks, this event is designed to be enjoyed by adults and children together. All young people under the age of 13 need to be accompanied by a paying adult and those aged 4 and above need a ticket to attend.

Note to readers: Go Stargazing is proud to support The Royal Institution by featuring their astronomy-related talks on our website. We recommend visiting their website to learn more about their other fascinating range of presentations.

Please note that this has already taken place on 23/10/2023

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
