Tonight's event is the third in the series Science & Cocktails and consists of a lecture by the theoretical physicist Niels Obers.

Niels Obers will talk about string theory in a lecture in which he comes around on topics such as extra dimensions, black holes and the universe's topography. Obers starts with a brief introduction to the fundamental particle physics, and then he throws himself on string theory and what it has contributed.
