London, England

Science is supposed to be public knowledge - but how does it get there? Public shows of scientific experiments have captured the imagination of countless generations, whether in the coffee houses of 18th-century London or in the Science Museum's Launchpad.

Join science historian Professor Simon Schaffer as he takes you on a journey through the test tubes, air pumps and big bangs that have changed our views of science and its many public meanings.

Simon Schaffer, Professor of the history and philosophy of science
