Like as the waves make towards the pebbl’d shore,
So do our minutes hasten to their end;
Each changing place with that which goes before,
In sequent toil all forwards do contend.
— William Shakespeare, Sonnet 60

A thrilling scientific journey

Join Dr Edmond Hui for an extraordinary, interactive journey in which you can discover the science of waves – nature's universal language. You will find out about the time he was trapped in a car with the throttle jammed full down; use lasers to understand light; discover how the science of sound united two musicians 140 years apart; and, finally, learn about the waves in gravity and space itself.

Waves are the principle behind our most significant senses: sight and sound. All waves obey the same laws under the tyrannical law of time. Learn how we convey and receive information between ourselves and the world around us, creating so much of what we understand as beauty.
