Join us for INcredible Stories in Science in Cambridge

What happens when you put an astronomer and a medical historian with poets and novelists?

What if the historian is also a poet?

And if the astronomer works in public engagement?

What if the novelists write about science, and one poet reviews for New Scientist?

Five voices from the arts and sciences discuss credibility in science:
