WIN CAFE SCI: WIRELESS COMMS AND A CONNECTED WORLD
Mon 7 Jan 2019 at: 19:45 to 21:00
Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester

“Wireless Communications: Towards a Connected World of People and Things.”

Wireless communication has evolved from pigeon-post to paging, voice calls, text messages, video calls – and now Internet everywhere. It has become the ubiquitous means of socializing, doing business and of entertainment. There are around 5 billion mobile phones in use through which we transmit around 60 terabytes of data every month. And yet, this is just the beginning – the future is even more exciting as we are moving from the internet-of-things to holographic video calls, which can conjure up the image of a person right in the room when we talk to them. However, one of the key issues of this technology, whether we have the capacity to accommodate all these users at a high quality-of-service. An obvious solution to circumvent this problem is to increase the bandwidth used. But we only have a limited bandwidth.

In this talk, I shall shed light on how to address this problem.

Events for February 2019
WIN CAFE SCI: ORIGIN OF SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES
Mon 4 Feb 2019 at: 19:45 to 21:00
Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester

All Cafe Sci talks at Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street are free to attend. Please arrive from 7.15pm for 7.45 start unless otherwise advertised. Licensed bar serving hot drinks, cakes and snacks. No charge to attend. Contributions welcome.

Licensed bar available from 7pm.

“The Origin of the First Supermassive Black Holes in the Universe” Dr Dan Whalen.”

Most massive galaxies in the universe today harbor supermassive black holes (SMBHs), with masses from a few million to tens of billions of solar masses.  But very bright quasars powered by billion solar mass BHs have now been discovered at redshift z ~ 7, or just 775 million years after the Big Bang.  They pose serious challenges to current theories of cosmological structure formation because it is not known how BHs this massive appeared by such early epochs.  I will discuss the possible origins of the first quasars and present new supercomputer simulations of how they could form in the first billion years of the universe.

SPEAKER DETAILS

Dan’s biography: PhD University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign 2006 Research Fellow, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) 2006 – 2009 McWilliams Fellow in Cosmology, Carnegie Mellon University 2009 – 2012 Research Scientist, LANL 2012 – 2014 Deputy Group Leader, Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics, Univ of Heidelberg 2014 – 2016 Senior Lecturer, Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, University of Portsmouth 2016.

CENTRAL STUDIO - LIVE MUSIC "THUNDERSTRUCK"
Fri 15 Feb 2019 at: 20:30 to 22:30
Main Theatre, Central Studio, Queen Marys College, Cliddesden Road, Basingstoke RG21 3HF

Finish the week off at a Central Studio tribute band night ... This is great way to finish off a week before the weekend gets into gear.

Thunderstruck are an AC/DC tribute act based in the South of England, that faithfully recreate the magic and hyper-active raw power that is totally AC/DC.

They present an all action stage show, reproducing all the classic songs you would expect to hear at an AC/DC concert, blasting out the adrenaline-driven AC/DC classics using the same equipment as the rock-masters use themselves. The gravel-laden power and charisma of ‘Bon Scott’ and ‘Brian Johnson’ combined, the blistering lead guitar solos and non-stop stage antics of ‘Angus Young’ along with the punch and power of the driving rhythm section of ‘Malcolm Young’, ‘Phil Rudd’ and ‘Cliff Williams’ are all reproduced down to the smallest detail. 

Thunderstruck have performed to a great reception everywhere they play, they will transport you on the ‘Rock and Roll Train’ and give you the same ultimate rock n roll experience as AC/DC.

Thunderstruck have been blowing their audiences away for a number of years (literally in some cases where the stage cannons are concerned!!). The band members are all highly experienced and have a massive combined track record of playing at all levels across the UK and the rest of the world.
