Royal Society readies Glastonbury for eggheads

Summer exhibition should be mud-free

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Diary marker From tiny fitness trainers and simulated surgery to high pressure situations on Earth and the possibility of generating life on Mars, the Royal Society's annual Summer Exhibition in London has got it covered.

Exhibitors from all over the UK are probably already on trains, planes, and automobiles on their way to the big smoke to set up their posters and demonstrations of the science that is on the sharpest of cutting edges.

Just the thing for the week after a Glastonbury mudbath.

There is stuff for space nuts, ocean explorers, maths junkies, and environmental tree-huggers. And probably just about anyone else with even a passing interest in science. There is even something passing itself off as art.

Last year we went along and pushed enough buttons to create a universe without enough entropy. Or dark energy. Or something like that. Goodness only knows what they might have come up with for 2007.

Things kick off on Monday at 6pm, and the exhibition is open to all from 10am on Tuesday 3 July. point your browser here for details and directions. ®
