Orkney International Science Festival

Frontline ideas in an island setting, with historic venues and the sound of the sea. The latest news on wave and tide power, how life may have come from outer space, searching the night sky for Hamlet, cloning ancient species – plus metals in medicine, making Viking ale, Norse genetics, the genius of James Clerk Maxwell, the mathematics of snowflakes, the physics of the hula hoop. Art exhibitions, concerts, outings to scenic sites, and opportunities to sample local food and drink.
