Signals from the Cause-mos

Nachiketa Chakraborty (Lecturer, Coventry University)
Have you gazed at the night sky and wondered about shiny dots strewn across the stretch of darkness? Distant stars and even galaxies shine over vast cosmic distances. What causes them to shine or twinkle or indeed do a lot more? The star closest to us, the Sun, belches out light and plasma towards us in celestial fits! Technology, advanced scientific methods and data have taught us plenty about them and on occasion protect us from the Sun’s fits! But at the heart of all this is a story. It is the story of a signal, most often light, that originates at these cosmic objects, journeys across space to reach us here on Earth. Tonight, join me on one such journey that begins in our “cause-mic” backyard, at the Sun.

The Probability of Rain is 50%

Richard Everitt (Reader in Statistics, University of Warwick)
We are all familiar with our weather app telling us that "the probability of rain is 50%". But what does this mean? To *really* understand, we need to take a tour of some concepts in probability and statistics, via chaos theory and the US election.
