Thinking and drinking. That is the unlikely goal of our meeting. Each month we invite a speaker to talk about an area of belief and to invite critical debate. We encourage skeptical thought and we enjoy challenging discussions.

Alok Jha: The extraordinary story of water, our most ordinary substance

  • Alok Jha: The extraordinary story of water, our most ordinary substance
  • 7 October 2015

    Water may seem the most ordinary of substances – it pours from our taps and falls from the sky – but you would be surprised at what a profoundly strange substance it is. It bends the rules of chemistry and defies easy scientific understanding. Without this rebel behaviour, however, none of us would exist. Alok Jha will change the way you look at water – showing how it has shaped life on earth, and how this molecule connects you and everyone else to the birth (and death) of the universe.

    Alok Jha is the science correspondent for ITV News. Before that, he did the same job at the Guardian for a decade. He has reported live from Antarctica and presented programmes for BBC TV and radio.
