About the event

Ever wondered how science becomes fiction? Join poet, playwright and essayist Lisa Minerva Luxx, screenwriter, editor and author Courttia Newland and award-winning physicist Dr Rob Appleby as they come together in conversation with publisher Ra Page to discuss Collision: Stories from the Science of CERN.

This short story collection published by Manchester independent publisher Comma Press is a unique collaboration pairing a team of authors with physicists at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research. From the possibilities of interstellar travel using quantum tunnelling to first contact with antimatter aliens, the trio talk about exploring these scientific steps through fiction and essays.
