Delve deeper into the biology of our bodies at this month’s Science Museum Lates and learn how innovations in technology and medicine are leading to breakthroughs that could change the way we live, literally. Join us on a journey through the human digestive system, explore what behavioural traits we share with our furry friends in the animal kingdom and get to gory grips with our bloodstream.

Rick Edwards and Dr Michael Brooks will be here recording an episode of their award-winning podcast Science(ish) and examining The Peculiar Science Behind 28 Days Later, and the folks of CompBioMed will be talking about their incredible work creating virtual organs. Plus, Dallas Campbell will present the complete guide to space exploration, taking a look at what humans will need to leave planet Earth.

All this and much more, including a guided tour of our object conservation lab, a pub quiz with a difference from Fumble exploring the hard science behind sexuality, and our famous intergalactic silent disco. Plus, you’ll be able to experience the thrill of taking off from the International Space Station with 35% off tickets to Space Descent VR with Tim Peake.
