Adelaide Festival of Ideas session, Freemasons Main Hall, 6:30 pm, Thursday 17th October, 2013. Chaired by Robert Phiddian and Phillip Adams. From dark energy to the Higgs boson, from cancer folklore to synthetic biology: great ideas often languish in obscurity until, decades later, they burst into relevance. World renowned physicist and best-selling author Professor Paul Davies shares some of the more exciting and significant examples that are revolutionising science today, and asks: what else lies in the dusty storehouse of human ideas that may yet transform our future?
