Computing the Cosmos: The Antikythera Mechanism
Tony Freeth PhD (Antikythera Mechanism Research Project)
Believed to be more than two thousand years old and discovered at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea in 1901, the Antikythera Mechanism has mystified the scientific community and humankind for over 100 years. Tony Freeth is a leading expert on the mechanism, and this is a one-night-only opportunity to find out the latest the research project has on offer.
