Antimatter Matters

Marvel at our extraordinary universe and the music of Bach with our new Sunday morning series for inquiring and curious minds, with divine music, lively conversation and stimulating science.

Bach’s music was all about symmetries, creating them in music like no composer had ever done before. Professor Tara Shears also works in symmetries. A world expert in antimatter, she’ll explain how these elusive particles are about symmetries that are almost, but not quite perfect. If we could understand more about them, we could understand more about how the universe evolved.

The musicians get into the festive spirit, meanwhile, the strident horns of BWV40 – a cantata Bach wrote to be performed in the Christmas period.

Our very own Sunday service is a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science. There is no better way to start a Sunday morning.
