Talk: The Physics of Piracy

calendar7th Dec 2022, 10:45 am

Torquay Museum Society Lecture by Dr Jonty Depp

Do pirate movies get the science right? Have you ever wondered if pirates needed gold and silver for more than just their riches? Perhaps humble pirates know more about the physics of piracy than might appear at first sight? Nautical Engineer and thespian Dr Johnty Depp will take his audience on a unique journey through the worlds of piracy and physics - unusual bedfellows. 

Lectures are free of charge to Torquay Museum Society Members but the general public are also welcome to attend - £5 per ticket, payable on the door.
