How are you keeping yourself entertained during the lockdown?
I think we can all agree that staying in is the new going out . . . but that doesn’t mean missing out on everything.
There’s a wealth of things being made available online as actual physical events have had to be cancelled.
I signed up for an online event only last week. I subscribe to Pint Of Science, which is annual festival that brings talks on all different kinds of scientific topics to the public in places like pubs and cafés.
British-born NASA astronaut Michael Foale was due to take part in a Q&A session, but it was obviously cancelled . . . until the wonder of Zoom made it possible for those anywhere in the world to join in!
We submitted our questions beforehand (he answered mine!), and it went without a hitch, unlike his time aboard the Mir Space Station! It was a brilliant hour.
It’s giving us all the chance to watch some incredible productions for free from our sofas.
So have a look and see what’s out there.
There are plenty of ways to keep our scientific and cultural brains ticking over . . . and you don’t need to queue!
