I am amazed at the crowds that are flocking to this series and I certainly enjoyed today’s lecture...  I want to tell you that I thought the Science Series was outstanding and I am so very glad I wasn’t deterred by the level of knowledge they might have required.  ... Thank goodness, I do take some notes and I have told various people how much they expanded by understanding of scientific progress in all these areas.  The presenters did such a great job in making their work impressive and the information accessible. - Heather Nov 2017
