Professor Terence Tao will deliver this year’s Hamilton Lecture, as part of the Royal Irish Academy’s Hamilton Day celebrations, generously sponsored by Ibec. In his talk entitled ‘The Cosmic Distance Ladder’ he will show how we can use basic secondary-school level maths, along with indirect measurements, to work out the distances between celestial bodies near and afar. He will be joined by a panel of Ireland’s top mathematicians for a Q&A session and will respond to questions submitted by viewers also. Broadcast Fri 6 Oct at 4pm. Free but booking essential. Questions in advance by 2 Oct to hamilton@ria.ie
