Dir. Ira Sachs USA/Fra/Braz/Gre 2014 94 mins (15)

Cafe Scientifique: The Science of Arson
Wednesday, April 8th @ 7.30pm
The Science of Arson
With Stephen Andrews, school of Forensic and Investigative Sciences, University of Central Lancashire

Most criminal minds seem to agree that the best way to destroy the evidence of their wrongdoings is to burn it; so they’d seem to be onto a pretty safe thing when a crime is the actual fire itself. Steve Andrews explains the theory, process and practice of investigating the causes of suspicious fires.

Stephen Andrews joined UCLan after 12 years as a senior forensic scientist with the Forensic Science Service where he investigated fires and non-terrorist explosions. He is an expert witness with considerable experience in criminal fire investigation casework . He was formerly a fire and explosion research scientist with the Health & Safety Laboratory of the HSE, and the Fire Research Station of BRE. Steve is research active within the area of fire and hazards science and is a member of the Centre for Fire and Hazards Science.

Cafe Scientifique is part of a national array of voluntary talks and debates based on scientific themes to which EVERYONE is welcomed. There is no admission fee, although donations towards the speaker's expenses are requested at the end of the evening.

Next Meeting: Wednesday, May 6th @ 7.30pm
Sonic Wonderland: A Scientific Odyssey of Sound
with Professor Trevor Cox, University of Salford

The Dean Clough Lego brick model
The Dean Clough Lego brick model will eventually use around a million bricks, be 35 foot long and have a chimney that's over 7 foot high.

RIGHT NOW, though, it's a 'mere' 15 foot long... and actually it's still pretty stunning.

Lego modellers Michael LeCount and Tony Priestman are at present studiously crafting the landscape around the East end of the half-mile site that used to be the world's largest carpet mill. You can see how it is progressing - for free - at any time during the normal gallery hours of 9.30am to 5.00pm, seven days a week.
