What we can fix depends on the availability of volunteers. If you want to ask about a particular item, please give us details via the website.

Science Philosophy Discussion June 12, 2019, Wednesday, 7:15/8pm-10pm. £4?. Brighton Cafe Scientifique - What's so critical about metals? - Resources for the renewable revolution.
Speaker: Martin Smith, Professor of Geochemistry in School of Environment and Technology, University of Brighton.
Location: Latest Music bar, 14-17 Manchester St, Brighton, BN2 1TF.
Quote: "Renewable energy and the shift to sustainable transport means that we now need to supply of a range of materials that haven't previously been produced at the necessary scale, whilst recycling cannot meet the expanding demand. This includes lithium and cobalt for rechargable batteries, selenium and tellurium for solar cells, and the rare earth elements (particularly praseodymium, neodymium and dysprosium) for high strength magnets - fundamental components of turbines and low-weight high-efficiency electric motors. The combination of the use in key technologies with geopolitical supply restrictions on some elements has led to the idea of critical metals. Focussing on the rare earth elements, this talk will examine the issues of supply of these elements and the geological controls on where they occur and how they can be produced.
Martin Smith is Professor of Geochemistry in School of Environment and Technology, University of Brighton. Martin is a geologist, geochemist and mineralogist, and has 25 years experience in geochemistry applied to problems in mineral deposit geology, hydrogeology and environmental mineralogy. He is currently a researcher on the NERC SoS:RARE project, investigating geological controls on a secure and environmentally acceptable supply of rare earth elements for the low carbon economy.

Science History June 21, 2019, Friday, 3:54pm (June 21 15:54 UT). June Solstice. Northern hemisphere summer begins. Quote: "Solstice is an astronomical term regarding the position of the Sun in relation to the earth's equator. The name is derived from Latin solstitium (from sol: 'sun' and sistere: 'stand still'). During the year, the position of the sun seen from earth moves North and South. When it changes direction it stands still momentarily... solstices are those moments of the year when the sun reaches its southernmost or northernmost position, at the Tropic of Capricorn or Tropic of Cancer. Solstice festivals were common (and held primacy) in most cultures of the ancient world." Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solstice

The story of their harmonious exploits will be complemented by a healthy dash of science, personal reflections, a communal singsong and lashings of free tea & cake immediately afterwards.
The songs are: 1) With A Little Help From My Friends (Beatles) 2) Stand By Me (Ben E King) 3) Reach (S Club 7)

Speaker: Neuroscience professor Miguel Maravall, University of Sussex.
Location: Latest Music bar, 14-17 Manchester St, Brighton, BN2 1TF.
Quote: "How do neurons work together to reflect patterns in our environment? with Prof Miguel Maravall on Wednesday 10 July. At Latest Music Bar; doors open 7:15, talk starts at 8:00pm. Neurons in our sensory systems cooperate to extract information and meaning from our environment. Different neurons have tremendously diverse responses, so that they play different roles and complement each other, even when they are near to each other. How does this neuronal symphony work, and how can we “listen” to neurons to make sense of what they tell each other? Miguel trained as a physicist but became a neuroscientist over 20 years ago. Studying neurons in the sense of touch with novel experimental techniques and analyses, his lab explores the principles underlying their language and aims to understand our capacity for making sense of natural patterns such as textures, melodies or speech. Miguel is currently professor of Neuroscience at the University of Sussex and one of the directors of the Sussex Neuroscience research programme."

Quote: "This is a really interesting circular walk of about 5 miles around Shoreham and its harbour. We'll initially walk up the river Adur on an old disused railway track with great views of Lancing College. We'll then cross the old toll bridge and walk back down the river side past Shoreham Airport and the houseboats before crossing to the seashore. There is a lovely board walk now down to Shoreham Fort - a fascinating 19th century fortification. Finally we'll walk back up the river Adur into Shoreham and over the new footbridge. As usual, we will be learning a bit about the geography and history of the area along the way. It will be a great chance to get some fresh air and stretch your legs in some spectacular scenery, while chatting with other friendly people along the way. The walk will be guided by Pete Comley.
NOTES: 1. There are no hills on this route. 2. The path is mainly surfaced so you could probably get away with ordinary shoes or trainers. 3. At the end of the walk, you’ll also be welcome to join us for Sunday lunch at Chambers Bistro (optional). Please let us know in advance to book you a table. 4. Dogs are welcome on the walk on leads. 5. If the walk needs to be cancelled due to very poor weather, we'll let you know 24 hours before and this will also be posted on our Facebook page...
How to find us... Meet near the Adur Ferry Bridge on the grassed area overlooking the river next to the Brighton Road. Car parking is nearby in Shoreham. Why not join me on the 700 bus leaving at 9:45 from the Old Steine (Stop T)? A Dayrider return ticket costs £4.40."

Quote: "A set of celebrations held in the town of Lewes, Sussex that constitute the United Kingdom's largest and most famous Bonfire Night festivities, with Lewes being called the bonfire capital of the world...
 Always held on 5 November (unless the 5th falls on a Sunday, in which case it's held on Saturday 4th), the event not only marks Guy Fawkes Night - the date of the uncovering of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 - but also commemorates the memory of the seventeen Protestant martyrs from the town burned at the stake for their faith during the Marian Persecutions.
 Lewes is home to the largest and most celebrated of the festivities in the Sussex bonfire tradition. There are seven societies putting on five separate parades and firework displays on the 5th, and this can mean 3,000 people taking part in the celebrations, and up to 80,000 spectators attending in the small market town with a permanent population of just under 16,000"

Walk December ?, 2019, Friday 5pm-8pm. December Solstice - Burning the Clocks LANTERN PARADE.
Quote: "Burning the Clocks is a unique festival of light and art that brings the city of Brighton together to mark the Winter Solstice. The festival was created in 1994 by the award-winning community arts charity Same Sky as a way to celebrate the holiday spirit regardless of people's religious beliefs. Recently it has adopted a totally different purpose as a rebellion against the modern day excess of Christmastime commercialism.
Make a lantern: What better way to get involved then to create your own lantern and participate in the event. It is very important to note that only approved lanterns will be allowed on the beach for safety reasons. You will need to purchase an official lantern kit in advance.
Walk in the parade: The parade is half the fun of the event and free for anyone to participate. The only requirement to participate in the parade is that you purchase an official lantern kit. The kit contains a parade wristband.
Wear something warm: The nights can get quite cold in Brighton over winter. The ocean breeze can drop temperatures quickly so make sure to wear a scarf and keep your head covered.
Participants of the parade meet at the Corn Exchange (one of the venues of the Brighton Dome) at 5pm. From here the lanterns are checked by officials to make sure the parade runs safely and smoothly. With lanterns lit the spectacle begins at around 6:30pm, as the crowd of around 2,000 people representing all ages make their way down New Road.
The streets are lined with eager spectators who cheer as the parade of light winds its way through the streets and down to the shorefront. In total some 20,000 spectators brave the cold to witness this motley procession of white shapes illuminating the darkness of the longest night for the year. At approximately 7:15pm the last group of the parade arrives at the beach to the beating of drums and the fire show springs to action."

Tentative Start: The Corn Exchange, near the Brighton Dome, Church St east of New Rd and Jubilee St. Route: Along Madeira Drive and surrounding streets|Prince Albert St & Ship St Brighton.
