First New Scientist Live event a great success

Science enthusiasts of all ages visited the ExCel, London for the first New Scientist Live event, last week.

There were five stages, four interactive zones, over a hundred speakers and more than two hundred exhibitors at the event which ran for four days from 22 – 25 September.

Astronaut Tim Peake opened the show and spoke on the main stage about his recent experience of living and working in space.

New Scientist Editor, Sumit Paul-Choudhury said of the event: “This is where you’ll find the answers to all the biggest questions that we have – about the universe, about ourselves, about what tomorrow will be like. It’s all here.”

The event was covered in the Press and on the radio by BBC Radio 5 who quizzed a group of experts on scientific questions sent in by listeners.

Plans are already underway for the next NSL event in 2017.
