We take the advance of science as given. But how does science really work? Who decides what the public gets to hear about? Are there too few scientists in the world or too many?

At the Royal Institution on 1st November, Jeremy Baumberg will discuss how science really works, who decides what the public gets to hear about and sheds light on the cutthroat and tightly tensioned enterprise that even scientists themselves often don’t fully understand.
