Today more than ever, science plays a critical role in predicting the behavior of the world and Universe around us. From challenges spanning global warming to understanding how our own planet fits into the solar system, it is key that we live in a world of reality based on evidence and scientific predictions, rather than in a world of fantasy.

Join us as Prof. Clocchiatti dissects the nonsensical scenario proposed by flat-earthers from the joyful perspective of a Newtonian physicist observing the solar system. He will explain the relevance of a consistent quantitative model to make sense of and predict the behavior of everything from climate science to the spread of COVID-19.
