Burning Issues – Fire and Flame, a lecture by Dr Peter Wothers. In this exciting demonstration lecture Dr Wothers investigates the process of combustion - why some things burn quietly but others explode violently.  Discover why water doesn't burn but some compounds spontaneously burst into flames.  Find out how a simple equation can help us achieve an even bigger bang.  You can expect to find the answers amid the usual flashes, flames and bangs!  (Warning: Loud bangs, recommended for ages 8+.)
