The Lost Lectures

Marc Abrahams

View the talk

Marc is a scientist, founder and host of the Annual Ig Nobel Prize, which celebrates all things odd, trivial and well, improbable emerging from the world of science. He is at the forefront of academia’s weirdest quests, honouring scientific achievements that make people laugh and then think. Whether it’s a scientific comparison of apples and oranges; research determining whether Kansas is physically flatter than a pancake or a controlled study of cats being dropped, these are the type of ground-breaking experiments you can read about in Marc’s magazine, The Annals of Improbable Research.
