Single-handedness is present in everything, down to the tiniest molecule.

This was startling to 20th Century scientists, who until then presumed the world was symmetrical. We now know right-handed sugars and left-handed amino acids completely dominate the biochemistry of living organisms. But if our universe is left-handed, why are humans predominantly right-handed? Even though our hearts are on the left? What is responsible for this leaning toward one side or the other?

Come and hear Distinguished Professor Peter Schwerdtfeger unravel some of the mysteries of the universe.

7 pm for drinks and nibbles - lecture starts at 7:30 pm.
